Toy donation event at The Foundry Dec. 8
A Killington tradition will happen once again in the same restaurant but with a new name.
The 26th Annual Ted Arbo Toys for Tots Holiday Party will be Saturday, Dec. 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. at The Foundry at Summit Pond, formerly The Grist Mill.
Guests are asked to bring an unwrapped toy as a donation and the event will feature a raffle with all proceeds going to charity.
This year, the Rutland Area Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice and the Killington-Pico Rotary will be the beneficiaries of the event.
Raffle items include local restaurant gift certificates, lodging packages, ski and snowboard gear and apparel, Killington golf and ski packages and more.
Guests will receive one raffle ticket in exchange for each toy donation and additional raffle tickets may be purchased at the door.
The party has been held in town since 1986. Throughout that time, over $100,000 in toys and donations have been raised, supporting many local agencies and causes including Rutland County Womenís Network and Shelter, The Open Door Mission and The Dodge House.
