The local non-profit organization For the Kid in All of Us will hold its 10th annual Toy Party & Silent Auction on Sunday, Dec. 2, from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Americas Mart 3, located at 240 Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta.
“In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Toy Party & Silent Auction we have planned a very special evening for our guests, including an amazing Cirque performer who will dazzle our guests throughout the evening,” said Alison Hall, president of the gay-friendly For the Kid in All of Us, in a statement.
“David Garibaldi from America’s Got Talent will perform in the VIP area and DJ Vicki Powell will keep the party going – there will be something for everyone to enjoy this year.”
There are three ways to attend the 10th Annual Toy Party & Silent Auction:
- General Admission ($5 per person plus an unwrapped toy with a $20 value or more) features live entertainment with an amazing Cirque performer with the Toy Party ‘Cirque de Jouets’ theme;
- Toy Party ‘Ultra Lounge’ ($50 per person + an unwrapped toy) includes a little piece of the VIP experience on the main level with dedicated bars and reserved tables; and
- The VIP Experience ($250 per person + an unwrapped toy) includes entry into the VIP areas with premium open bar and hors d’oeuvres; entry into the VIP-only David Garibaldi performance; live auction; access to the main level ‘Ultra Lounge’; a commemorative gift and more.
Guests must be at least 21 years old to attend the Toy Party & Silent Auction and provide a valid picture ID.
The silent auction will include a wide assortment of items from local donors including restaurants, travel, art and more.
“What began a decade ago as a house party where everyone brought an unwrapped toy has grown into one of the ‘must attend’ events of the season where more than 4,000 people show up and have a good time while ensuring that underprivileged kids in our community have a gift on Christmas morning,” Hall said.
All contributions – toys and gift cards – will be donated to 24 non-profit agencies that serve Georgia’s children in need in time for the holidays.
In 2003, a group of friends founded For the Kid in All of Us, the all-volunteer non-profit organization that produces The Toy Party & Silent Auction.
And since 2003, For the Kid in All of Us has distributed more than 35,000 toys and gift cards through The Toy Party & Silent Auction, 9,450 backpacks filled with school supplies and gift cards through Backpack in the Park, and raised more than $470,000 to donate to numerous agencies and organization serving Georgia’s less fortunate children.
