3rd Annual Toy Drive and Holiday Celebration

You're invited to join BRIDGEMEN and our host Michael Wilson to raise a glass and raise spirits this holiday with our 3rd annual holiday toy drive to benefit HIV-positive children and teens in the Bay Area.

Join us on Saturday, December 14th from 7:30pm to 10:30pm at the John Brody Salon in the Castro wher we'll feature music by DJ HotWired, yummy hors d'oeuvres, and holiday spirits.

Required RSVP for you and your guests (up to 2 guests) by December 7th at 6pm.

Together we have already raised over $500 in toys and gifts for infants, children and young adults who are living with HIV and AIDS.  Many of these children live with foster parents who struggle daily to support these brave kids, and you and your guests' donation of an unwrapped toy, gift or gift card will help make all of their holidays this December more joyful.

Saturday, December 14th | 7:30pm-10:30pm

John Brody Salon, 2338 Market Street (next to Beaux)

    Hello All,
    I have a co-worker that is a stuggling single mother of a verry bright 5 year old boy. How can we her access the donations?
