HARTFORD -- One of MetroHartford Alliance's most anticipated annual events of the season, Tons of Toys, is a spirited and sophisticated gathering combining delicious food, drinks, and festive activities with charitable giving.

Admission to Tons of Toys is one new, unwrapped, toy valued around $20, or $20 in cash, check, or on a credit card. All toys collected will once again benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford. Last year over 1,500 toys were collected, and the hope is to surpass that number of donations at this year's event.

Hors d'oeuvres will be provided, there will be a cash-only bar, and an amazing holiday cake provided by A Little Imagination Cakes. DJ Miles Elliot will be playing tunes all night long, and SnapSeat, a photobooth service, will be back again this year!
