Toy Train Charity Party Saturday Dec. 8
Hors d’oeuvers will be served 8-10 p.m. along with beer and wine. First State Bank will sponsor this years celebration.
During a 2008 interview, Alex Vence, now manager of the West Virginia Building, told HNN that “over the years the donations from this annual event have provided toys for hundreds of children in the Tri-State. I hope each of you can attend and make Christmas a little brighter for needy children,” Vence said.
Admission to the party and gathering is simple --- a unwrapped child’s gift or $25 donation (at the door). Among the charities that benefit from Toy Train are Branches domestic Violence Shelter, the Stella Fuller Settlement, Ronald McDonald House, various churches and other non-profit organizations.
The founders of Toy Train West Virginia include Scott McClure (city attorney), Ashley Lockwood, Toni Mancini, Hannah Muerrell, and Daniel and Anne Yon.
Please come support "The Little Charity That Can."
The tax exempt organization provides toys for children at Golden Girl, Inc., Sarah’s Heart Childcare, Cabell County Coalition for the Homeless, the Kanawha Valley Center Behavioral Health Center and two elementary schools, Central City and Geneva Kent.
