Don't Miss Out On Our Cleveland Toy Drive Networking Social Event Wednesday, November 29, 2017
Skylight Foundation’s annual holiday toy drive, in partnership with the Cleveland Police Foundation, is in full swing as the “giving bug” takes grip. As we approach the mid-point of our drive, we are thrilled with the generous response from our community friends and partners which enabled us earlier this week to buy around 500 toys at Target (just your average Monday!).
But we still need your help to reach our record-breaking goal of 1,500 toys and we invite you to join us on Wednesday, December 13th from 5-7pm for our Holiday Toy Drive Networking Social Event. This social networking event is a great opportunity to mix and mingle, meet new people in our community, have fun and support a great cause. The event is open to everyone and you can enjoy appetizers (provided by Crop Bistro), refreshments (provided by local breweries) and take in some of the best views of Cleveland from our penthouse. Members of the Cleveland Police Foundation will join us and if you stick around, there might even be a special guest appearance by Santa Claus!
Jeff Zemito, one of our Cleveland area toy drive chairpersons, said “This is now our 3rd Annual Holiday Toy Drive and it’s one of the most exciting times of the year for us all at Skylight. We are making great progress this year and we are more determined than ever to bring the joy of Christmas to a greater number of less fortunate children. Our networking social event is our final push to collect toys, so please come along and support! You can also find out exactly where your donation is going as the Cleveland Police Foundation will speak about the incredible impact the toy drive has for children and families in Cleveland.”
Jonathan Goldston, who is also a toy drive chairperson, added “It’s a great feeling to be able to help children experience the magic of Christmas and that’s why I love the Skylight toy drive so much. We get to donate massive amounts of toys to local children who otherwise might not receive a single gift – a situation I find almost unimaginable. It’s great to see more and more wonderful people lending a hand this year, our young Skylight financial professionals Armando Toska and Drew Stelzer, and our community supporters such as Proforma ASAP and iHeartRadio. Giving becomes contagious so we hope to see you on December 13th where together as a community we can make a difference!”
