Tons of Toys
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.
