2013 Tons of Toys Giving Tree

Nov 05, 2013

Help HYPE give back to our local community by coming to Get HYPEd at Arch Street Tavern and participating in The Giving Tree! Stop by the event on Wednesday, November 6th and select an ornament from The Giving Tree. Purchase the toy listed on the ornament, and bring the toy and the ornament to Tons of Toys on Wednesday, December 11th. Each ornament features a toy from the Boys & Girls Club of Hartford’s holiday wish list, and all toys collected at Tons of Toys will be donated to BGCH! Everyone who brings a Giving Tree toy to Tons of Toys will be automatically entered to win an Infinity Hall gift card, and 4 tickets to see Cherry Poppin' Daddies in Norfolk on January 12!

Tons of Toys will be at the Gershon Fox Ballroom (960 Main Street, Hartford) on Wednesday, December 11th.  Bring your kids from 4-6 pm to get their photo taken with Santa! We’ll provide the milk and cookies, you just bring a toy for donation. From 6-9 pm we will begin the adults-only portion of the event (don’t worry, Santa will stick around!). Semi-formal dress is encouraged but business or business-casual is also acceptable. There will be a full cash bar as well as hors d'oeuvres and music.  Please click here to RSVP on Facebook!

cupHYPE Cup participants can earn an extra point for their team! Simply bring an ornament from the Giving Tree, the corresponding toy, as well as 4 other toys to earn an extra point. Teams in the past have set up toy drives in their offices or communities with fantastic results. It is largely through the generosity of HYPE Cup participants that we were able to collect 1,300 toys in 2012!

All toys from the event will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Hartford. BGCH has been at the forefront of youth development for well over 150 years, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. They actively seek to enrich the lives of girls and boys who need them most. BGCH is dedicated to ensuring that our community’s youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and positively shape their futures.
