For its seasonal atmosphere and holiday giving, this week’s LGBTQ event of the week is DVLF’s TOY 2016. This year marks the event’s 10th anniversary, and as always guests are expected to bring one unwrapped toy that will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and clients of Action Wellness. Get ready to be greeted by local celebrity “DVLF Elves” — city representative Sheila Hess, executive director of PHL Diversity Greg DeShields, radio personality Marilyn Russell, and DVLF’s 2015 Community HERO Ian Morrison (aka Brittany Lynn) — and enjoy appetizers and an open vodka bar with beer and wine. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 10th, at Top of the Tower, 1717 Arch Street. Tickets
