Our Sunnyside Santathon 2013 was a massive success! Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate the day with us. After all the monetary and toy donations were tallied up, we raised $10,000. Check out all the photos, taken by Ani Corless, on our Sunnyside’s Boulevard Bars Facebook page.
Organizations receiving toys include St. Teresa’s in Woodside, St. Raphael’s in Sunnyside, the 108th Precinct Toy Drive, the MercyFirst Angel Guardian Orphanage in Brooklyn, and the Metro Homeless Shelter on Queens Boulevard, as well as others.
The first wave of toys was donated on Thursday, December 12th at the United Forties Civic Association Holiday Party @ St. Teresa’s Church in Woodside. Reps from St. Teresa’s, St. Raphael’s, and the 108th Precinct were there, along with Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer and Captain Brian Hennessy.
