Toys for Joys party another huge success

T4J Boston, Toys for Joys Boston, Toys 4 JoysThe annual Toys for Joys party was a great success.  This year the event moved to accommodate a larger crowd and was hosted at the Revere Hotel’s Space 57 in Bay Village.  The Toys for Joys party has no long speeches and you are not repeatedly asked to ‘open your check book one more time.’  It is a fresh take on fundraising that focuses on socializing and bringing our community together, making it accessible all – not just people able to write large checks.  If you missed the event, I hope to see you there in 2015. Learn more about T4J here.
