Naughty and nice LGBT Atlantans turned out Saturday to celebrate the holiday season while raising funds and collecting toys for children in need during the 15th Annual Toy Party & Silent Auction.
Just $10 cash and a $20 toy got you through the door for a multi-level holiday experience at Americas Mart 3. Toy Party originated in 2003 with a group of gay friends that later turned into For The Kid In All Of Us, the non-profit that now operates the event.
Beneficiaries include AID Atlanta, All About Developmental Disabilities, Atlanta Children's Shelter, Carrie Steele-Pitts Home, Childkind, CHRIS 180, Cool Girls, Cords of Life, Decatur Housing Authority, Devereux Georgia, East Lake Foundation, Easter Seals North Georgia, Hillside, Iglesia Monte Sinai Atlanta, Jerusalem House, Legacy of Pearls Foundation, Lutheran Services of Georgia, Malachi's Storehouse and SafePath Children's Advocacy Center.
Toy Party is a gay Atlanta institution. See for yourself with photos from 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2008.
