12-4-17 - ToyCon Charity Toy Show

Post by Schph Gochi »

Since at least 2004 the MWG has been asked to attend the annual ToyCon Charity Toy Show to benefit Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation which provides toys and gift cards (for older kids) for children undergoing treatments in hospitals across the country. If you have done an event at Lurie or Christ Hospital, you will have seen one of their toy chests.

https://www.facebook.com/POTCF/

The MWG is there to raise some money to help purchase the gift cards for the older children.

My thanks to all who came out this year and have come out for many, many years to support this event. Most of us bring toys as well as being there to raise some cash.
