Brandon Toys for Tots collection nets $17,000, boxes of gifts
A Toys for Tots fundraiser brought in $17,000 in cash and 11 boxes of toys during its December drive. In October, Tatyana Frost of The Way 2 Dance decided to host a holiday charity ball for the organization and Bob Savage of Savage Consulting volunteered his time and services, and even became a board member. Within two months, more than $17,000 in cash and $5,000 in-kind donations were raised, as well as 11 boxes of toys. On Dec. 20, close to 200 people walked down the red carpet at The Regent. Tatyana and Bob want to thank everyone who contributed to this event. They want to remind donors that whether they brought a toy or became a sponsor the assistance made a child's dream come true at Christmas.The Way 2 Dance and Savage Consulting are planning the second Holiday Charity Ball on Dec. 12, 2013, at The Regent in Riverview.
