7th Annual Give Back Friday To Boost Binghamton Holiday Toy Donations
(BINGHAMTON, NY) – The Children’s Charity of Greater Binghamton will host the 7th Annual Give Back Friday benefit to aid the Toys for Tots program in Broome County. Give Back Friday runs from 7-11pm on Friday, November 28th, 2014. The event will be held in the downstairs banquet room at the Relief Pitcher, 197 Conklin Ave., Binghamton.
“Every year, now for seven years, the necessity to help children in our community during Christmas has increased,” said Children’s Charity President Jim Worhach. “But just as the need for toy donations has grown, so has Give Back Friday – the community has stepped up in a big way -- and again in 2014 we’re up for the challenge.”
In seven years Give Back Friday has become the single-largest toy drive for Toys for Tots in Broome County.
“We are dedicated to continuing this important toy drive and other events in our community, because a family’s need is never the child’s fault,” said Children’s Charity Vice President Liz Bucci. “Every child deserves something for Christmas, and thanks to our generous community, we help make that happen.”
Give Back Friday is expected to collect hundreds of toys for Toys for Tots. The event will feature music by Louie G and silent auctions.
Admission is $20 and an unwrapped toy. Food, beer, wine and soda are provided with an additional cash bar available.
