Somerville’s 2016 Annual Toys for Local Children 

By Frank Santangelo 

Toys for Local Children held their 11th annual event, on Saturday, December 3rd. There were over one hundred people in attendance. This was a fun filled event with representatives from MMA (Massachusetts Motorcycle Association), local attorneys, the business community, politicians, and community members.
Paul Collyer, from the jingle bell run was there to represent BA Events. Paul has generously supported the program for over 8 years. President David Smith, says we could not run this program without people like Paul Collyer, Former Somerville Mayor Gene Brune, Susan Fontano, Attorney Michael Dwyer, BillyTauro, and many more community leaders.

We have added many new partnerships like Dr. Mouhab Rizkullah from the Braces Place. Who had a table full off family and friend and donated $5000 gift certificate for Braces .
David Smith and the board sends their heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to make the night a huge success. Many children will have a happy holiday because of all of them and we are very appreciative of our partners and the many volunteers.
