With the holiday spirit of giving now in full swing I’m hoping that some of you will step forward to volunteer and help The Boston chapter of Gay for Good assemble the Toys for Joys, Inc. – T4J signature wagons in advance of their party.
Please help spread the word and share this post on FB and TwitterVolunteers are needed Tuesday, December 2nd 6:30 – 8:30 pm
The annual Toys for Joys Party (#T4J2014) registration is open!
The T4J party is one not to be missed. This social party helps collect and distribute toys for children in and around Boston who might otherwise not have gifts to open on Christmas day. Devoid of long drawn out speeches and rubber chicken dinners, this is an amazing event that seems to get better each year.
This year is no exception as T4J moves to a new venue in Bay Village at The Revere Hotel Boston Common – Space 57. Check out last year’s video below and for more information about the event visit their website here.
Date/Time:Saturday, December 6th / 8:00 PM to 1:00 AM Location:200 Stuart Street Donation:$35.00charitable event donation upon registration & 3 toys.

This past Saturday night the annual Toys For Joys party was held in a new, larger venue. More than 600 men and women braved a snowstorm to bring gifts that will be given to charities that help make Christmas a little extra special for children in the area.
Thank you to everyone who posed for a picture and to Piper Jo Nevins Photography for letting me swipe a few of their event photographs for the T4J video.
Earlier this month the organizers behind the annual holiday fundraiser, Toys for Joys, announced that the event would be held on Saturday, December 14th in a new, larger location in Southie. This past Friday Toys for Joys registration opened. A modest registration fee of $30 has been added this year. I hope to see you there.
Time: Saturday, December 14, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 12:00 AM
Location: 1 Black Falcon Ave. Boston (formerly Black Falcon Cruise Terminal)
One of my favorite holiday traditions in Boston is the annual Toys for Joys party. The growing popularity of this event appears to have moved the party from the Artist for Humanity building to the larger Black Falcon Cruise Terminal in South Boston. You can stay up to date with all the plans for this year’s party (their 5th anniversary) by liking T4J’s Facebook Page.
This past Saturday was the 4th annual Toys for Joys in Boston. Each year this event collects thousands of gifts that are in-turn passed along to local charities for their distribution to underprivileged children during the holiday season. I love the cause and enjoy the party each year. If you missed Saturday’s party, but want to contribute to this non-profit’s cause, you may make a donation on their website, here.
Thank you to all who posed for the photos from the 4th Annual Toys for Joys and thank you to Sergio for bringing along the camera.
This Saturday is Boston’s annual Toys for Joys (a.k.a. T4J) event / fundraiser. T4J is a non-profit dedicated to collecting toys and gifts for underprivileged children during the holiday season. It happens to be one of my favorite holiday parties and as of earlier this week it appeared that registration was still open. Curious to learn more and check out this fantastic (and very worthwhile) event – Register Here Today.
Toys for Joys Boston is one of my favorite (and one of the most social) holiday parties held each December. Thanks to the organizers, sponsors and the community this party donates thousands of dollars of gifts for children, but to attend this party you must register. To tempt you into coming, I’ve included photographs from the 2011 Toys for Joys party in Boston, here.
Use the link below to register if you are planning to join. This party always sells out so share the registration link with your friends. Note that this year there is a $10 donation at the door in addition to the gifts.
Stay tuned for more updates that I’ll publish here.

This past Saturday was the annual Toys for Joys (a.k.a. T4J) event in Boston. T4J is a non-profit event/organization dedicated to providing toys and gifts for underprivileged children during the holiday season. It happens to be one of the best holiday parties I attend and this year’s program didn’t disappoint.
It’s hard to say how many men attend this event which is overwhelmingly (although not exclusively) gay, but I would guess close to a thousand guys attend. The program is either a perfect place to start your evening or as a second stop on what is always a popular night (the 2nd Saturday of December).
There was no way I could collect enough pictures from the event and many of my photographs unfortunately did not come out as I had hoped (mental note, vodka + BosGuy = crappy pictures). However here is a sampling of some of the gracious attendees who paused to pose for me and my trusty companion Sergio.
I have not seen any reports on how many gifts or attendees visited the event this past weekend, but you can learn more about the program by visiting their site, toysforjoys.org.
