GIVEAWAY: Win Tickets to TOY This Saturday [CONTEST CLOSED]

If you’ve lived in Philly for a while, you know that TOY, Delaware Valley Legacy Fund (DVLF)’s annual holiday fundraiser for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and ActionAIDS, is not only one of the go-to events of the season but of the year. And the eighth annual gathering is happening this Saturday in Old City.

Over the past few years it was held after hours at the Reading Terminal Market, but this year organizers have decided to take the shindig east to Fire & Ice in Old City, where, DVLF’s Samantha Giusti tells me, the space will be transformed into a winter wonderland as guests mingle, nibble, sip and boogie to the sounds of DJ Carl Michaels.

TOY takes place Saturday, December 6th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $75 in advance and $95 at the door, but we have a pair to give away to a lucky reader. It’s easy to win, just email me at with the subject line “I want to go to TOY!” The first person to do that will score the prize.

If you don’t win, tickets can be purchased here. Word on the street is that it’s better to get them beforehand, because there may not be any left to sell at the door. Remember, all guests are asked to bring one unwrapped toy that will be donated to patients at CHOP.
