9th Annual Toys for Joys is Friday, December 9th at The Revere Hotel

Get Your Tickets to T4J 2017 – Here

I wanted to give another shout out to one of my personal favorite Boston holiday traditions and encourage anyone who has yet to purchase tickets to this year’s Toys for Joys to plan on joining Sergio and me at this fun event that helps bring presents to under privileged youth in and around Boston.

Toys for Joys, T4J

Unlike most fundraisers you may have attended in the past the event is devoid of rubber chicken dinners, self righteous speeches and people chasing you to donate more money. This celebration now in its ninth year has grown tremendously but remains as festive and social as ever and the newly remodeled space at the Revere Hotel will make this year’s event even better.

The organizers of Toys for Joys (T4J for short) simply ask that in addition to buying your ticket to the event that you purchase 3 gifts: one for tots (3-months to 5 yrs), tweens (6-11 yrs) and teens (12-18yrs). Bring the unwrapped gifts to place under the T4J tree. If your last name begins with A-M you purchase toys for a girl and if your last name begins with N-Z purchase gifts for boys.

For those who do not want to go toy shopping to bring gifts to the event, the T4J organizers have added a new option this year for $250 that includes six gifts (3 for boys and 3 for girls) along with expedited admission. If that is more than your holiday budget will accommodate, no worries there are more affordable (tax deductible) options.

T4J Boston, Toys for Joys Boston, Toys 4 Joys If you’ve yet to register to attend the 8th annual Toys for Joys Gift Gala, I wanted to remind you that the celebration is a week from this Friday on December 9th. This is a really wonderful event that brings together Boston’s LGBTQ community and our allies to collect gifts for underprivileged children in Boston and the Boston area. The fundraiser is devoid of speeches and rubber chicken meals and devoted instead to socializing with friends.

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.
