Forty-One Sports Bar and Grille along with the North Lansingburgh Neighborhood Watch will be hosting a fundraiser to benefit the group’sFifth Annual Troy Drive on Friday December 7, 2012 from 7:00 pm to 8:30pm at the restaurant located at 41-112thStreet in Troy.
Organizers are asking patrons to bring an unwrapped toy for children up to the age of 12. For their donation patrons will enjoy a buffet of complimentary appetizers provided by Forty-One Bar and Grille. Additionally, there will be several prizes raffles and a 50/50 with proceeds benefiting the toy drive.
We are finding that requests for donated toys from local community centers are increasing each year during the Holiday Season. Events such as these help us in meetingthis demand. A lot of work and coordination goes into an event like this, we are grateful of the time and resources the community continues to invest. It all pays off when you see the excitement in the kid’s eyes and the smiles on their faces when Santa calls their name.
The collected toys will be gifted to local children throughWhitney Young Health Service’s Troy facility and the Lansingburgh Boys and Girls Club.
Community members are reminded that if you are unable to attend the fundraiser on Friday, that they can still make their donation at any of the toy drop box locations untilMonday, December 10 or by attending the neighborhood watch’s December monthly meeting on Tuesday,December 11 at 7:00pm at the Lansingburgh Boys and Girls Club.
