Tons of Toys

Hartford Courant - - Living -

The Hartford Young Pro­fes­sion­als and En­trepreneurs hosted its an­nual Tons of Toys fundraiser Dec. 5 at the Ger­shon Fox build­ing in down­town Hartford. The Tons of Toys event in­cluded food, mu­sic, danc­ing and was the 13th for HYPE, which or­ga­nized in 2006 with the goal of help­ing young pro­fes­sion­als en­gage with the com­mu­nity as well as ex­pand­ing pro­fes­sional and so­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties in Hartford. More than 200 young pro­fes­sion­als at­tended the event and, with the help of lo­cal spon­sors, 1,700 toys were col­lected for the YMCA of Greater Hartford.
