Toast of the Town is the event, but the purpose is the belief that the hope for this community lies in the hearts and minds of its children.
The beneficiaries of Toast of the Town are Options Child Therapy Program, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Strategic Alliance for Burke Youth (SABY). Each of these programs works to lift up, teach and support children in need, whether it be a mentor helping with homework, a counselor helping a child cope through unimaginable circumstances, or a program that fosters youth. So as you enjoy the evening of celebration, you are indeed making a difference in the lives of children who are in need.
At each venue there will be a short presentation about the beneficiaries. You will then be given a donation card that offers the opportunity to win an outstanding venue prize specific to each venue. This spirited drawing at each venue determines the winner and measures the FUNd raising success of the evening.
