San Francisco, CA
Variety's annual Toys for Tots toy drive hosted by longtime patron, Gregg Lynn, yet again raised a record amount of toys, easily topping 1,650 toys collected. The St. Regis Hotel again has graciously hosted this amazing event and helped Variety to collect toys that will be distributed among our partner agencies, including the Blind Babies Foundation, Hamilton Family Services, Coalition on Homelessness, Oakes Children's Center, Booker T. Washington Community Services Center, Edgewood Children and Families Center, United Playaz, Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, Boys Hope Girls Hope, Boys and Girls Clubs of SF, Oakland and San Mateo, and more.
In the days that follow Variety's volunteers will first sort the toys by gender and age range and then pick out specific toys for each of the intended recipients and deliver them onsite.
Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers that made this event possible, and congratulations to Gregg Lynn and his host committee, Geoffrey Applegarth, Brian Backus, Derek Barnes, Julie Candice, Chris Carnes ,John Caruso, John Crandon, David Dancer, Jason Dorn, Elizabeth Erhardt, Marc Freed Finnegan, Ellen Goodman, Arthur Goodrich, Christy Hannaford, Lance Holman, Tony Jenkins, David Kensington, Kevin Lemons, Tom Perrault, and Ken Smith!
