Toy drive benefiting Children’s Medical Center and the S.M. Wright Foundation Friday, November 27th

What’s more fun than being Santa for a day?  This year, you’ll have the chance at Highland Park Village as they introduce a toy drive benefitting Children’s Medical Center and the S.M. Wright Foundation as part of the annual holiday celebration.   New, unwrapped toys may be dropped off on Friday, November 27th from 2 to 6pm in the area between Starbucks and Chanel, where Holt Haynsworth will be snapping those famous photos with Santa.

The toy drive along with festive holiday activities such as cookie decorating, face painting and caroling, will signify the start of the holiday season at the Village.  The acclaimed holiday lights will be illuminated just before 6pm and the carriage rides that have become a family tradition for so many will begin touring the neighboring streets.
