Name of Event: Toy Con http://www.toycontoyshow.com/ Charity Toy Show http://www.toycontoyshow.com/Our_Products.html benefiting the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation http://treasurechest.org/ supporting children diagnosed with Cancer
Date: Sunday, December 11, 2005
Bridgeview Community Center
7900 S. Oketo Ave.
Members of the 501st Legion, Midwest Garrison, Rebel Legion Midwest Base and friends provided Star Wars fun and ambience for the second year in a row at the annual ToyCon Charity Toy Show.
Representatives from the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation accepted donations from attendees to have both digital and Polaroid pictures taken with our dozen Star Wars charaters in the children's activity room. Patrons could chose whom they wished to pose with in their pictures, however the entire group was definitely the favorite. Over $100.00 was raised.
The foundation representatives also collected our donations of toys as well as those generously donated by exhibitors and attendees at the show.
All donated Toys go to the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation http://treasurechest.org/ , supporting children diagnosed with Cancer.
The foundation supports more than 3,500 children each month who are diagnosed with cancer and treated at one of the twenty-seven hospitals nationwide.
