The Summit Adventure Park Holiday Lane Toys for Tots Drive proved a great success, with the Dec. 19 Spring Hill event bringing in box loads of toys, not to mention many rays of sunshine, to benefit Toys for Tots Hernando and Pasco counties.
Some of the items donated include; baby dolls, Disney princess dolls, art sets, coloring and activity books, sport balls, clothes, stuffed animals and dolls, games and activity sets, and play-doh sets. Guests brought a multitude of toy treasures to the drive, which took place at Summit Adventure Park, the Trampoline park located on Spring Hill Drive at Four Corners.
"We did pretty good with Toys for Tots and even got to tour the distribution center for Hernando," said Atlanta McDonald, account executive at Hits 106, parent station of Citrus 95.3. Holiday Lane represented the union of community businesses who came together to make sure that needy children in Hernando and Pasco counties had toys waiting for them under the tree this Christmas. Presented by Summit, Citarella Termite and Pest Management, Toys for Tots, and Safeguard Softwash, and featuring a live remote from Citrus 95.3. Featuring a balloon artist, pictures with Santa, free goodies, prizes, and discounted trampoline jumping, this event also offered raffles with prizes. Every guest who brought an unwrapped toy could register to win one of these prizes.
Photos and videos supplied by McDonald take the viewer on a tour of Holiday Lane, lined with artisan vendors, family-friendly activities, etc. The lane also came lined with life-sized figures and inflatables depicting reindeer, snowpeople, penguins in Santa hats, and Santa himself; and with boxes just filled with gifts of playful sunshine for children in need.
