DVLF gears up for the 10th year of TOY

December 7, 2016

 

The annual charity event makes the holidays brighter for kids in need.

 

The Delaware Valley Legacy Fund throws one of the most popular social events of the holiday season — TOY. This year, it celebrates its 10th anniversary at Top of the Tower, offering stunning views of Center City from the 51st floor.

 

Back in 2007, it began as a small holiday party for friends organized by a DVLF volunteer.

 

“It was so successful that it grew into TOY as we know it,” says Executive Director, Samantha Giusti.

 

Guests can enjoy a full open bar, hors d’oeuvres and a performance from singer/songwriter Aiden James in addition to dancing. But in case you want to mingle without the distractions of people attempting to “pop and lock,” there’s a separate space strictly for lounging.

 

Giusti notes, “Some folks want TOY to be more of a dance party, while others are looking to network and have conversation. This space allows us to do both.”

 

The most important component of the evening, however, is bringing an unwrapped TOY for the kids at Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania (CHOP) and those assisted by Action Wellness, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people with chronic illnesses.

 

Kevin Burns, Executive Director of Action Wellness, says of the event:

 

“My favorite part is when our volunteers and the volunteers from CHOP pack up all the toys to bring them back to our offices. And then giving out the toys.”

 

He adds, “We would never, ever be able to make sure that each of our kids get something on the holidays without this event. It means the world to us and I know the staff at CHOP feels the same way.”
