Saratoga Brewing and DeCrescente Distributing will present checks to three local charities on Tuesday, December 20th at 5:00 p.m.
Thanks in large part to the support of the local community, this year’s Toys For Toga campaign was a huge success, collecting more than 3,000 toys and raising over $10,000.
“We couldn’t have done it without the amazing kindness and generosity of the people in our community,” said Max Oswald, General Manager of Saratoga Brewing. “Thank you to the local bars and restaurants and their patrons for their participation and their commitment to helping those in need.”
This year’s Toys For Toga campaign was a collaborative effort. DZ Restaurants (Forno Bistro, Chianti and Boca Bistro) and WOW Restaurants (Wheatfield’s Saratoga & Clifton Park, Beer Wine Pizza and 2 West Bar & Grille) combined raised nearly $4,000, while Kings Tavern, Saratoga City Tavern, The Barrelhouse, and Quarters collected hundreds of toys and dollars each. Death Wish Coffee Company traded more than 600 pounds of coffee for new, unwrapped toys. The Skidmore College Ice Hockey Team raised thousands of dollars for Toys For Toga by raffling off custom jerseys.
“These are just a few of the many businesses whose generosity allow us to help so many local kids this holiday,” said Oswald.
Toys and checks will be presented to Franklin Community Center, CAPTAIN Youth and Family Services and Mechanicville Area Community Services Center Tuesday, December 20, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. at the Saratoga Brewing Tap Room located at 131 Excelsior Ave in Saratoga Springs. Media and guests are invited to attend from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to enjoy light appetizers and beverages plus a short presentation and photo opportunity.
