AAGD/AATC—Climbing the Toy Mountain…Again!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
It’s that time again… time to build a mountain and make a difference!

The annual AAGD/AATC Christmas Reception is just around the corner. In case you haven’t been to this one-of-a-kind event yet, allow me to tell you what’s in store for you. For 2 days leading up to the event, the committee is hard at work wrapping boxes and strategically stacking toys to build the infamous toy mountain, which is proudly displayed at the Reception. By the way, our event takes up the entire lobby and entrance of the Renaissance Hotel in Addison. Once everyone has enjoyed the dinner buffet and a preferred beverage or two, a presentation is made to The Marines to gift them all the toys that were donated and purchased. It is truly a rewarding experience to be part of. After the presentation is made, it takes the entire attendance to grab a toy off the mountain, form a line, and load all toys into the trucks to be taken to the appropriate warehouses. It’s amazing how quickly we can move those toys when we all lend a hand. So, dig out your cocktail attire and join us on Thursday, December 5thfor a Toys for Tots event unlike any other! You read that right- the event is on a THURSDAY this year.

The committees are hard at work collecting donations to reach our $100K goal! We also can’t wait to see what toys are brought in from our fabulous properties.
