2013 TOYS FOR TOTS
On Friday, December 13, 2013, the 1st Annual Fastpitch by Analisa "Toys for
Tots" Drive was held. Pitching students, parents and friends got
together at Gallista Gallery to celebrate the spirit of
Christmas. Fun activities, snacks and refreshments were provided.
Some lucky students were winners of free pitching lessons, summer camp passes
But the most important part of the evening's
get-together was the collection of toys. All present brought toys
that were then donated to underprivileged children at the YWCA-Las Palmas
Branch as well as the Madonna Neighborhood Community
Center. Others who weren't able to make the event still dropped off
toys over the weekend increasing our final toy collection.
I am very proud of my
students and their parents for helping make Christmas a little brighter for
other children. I am also thankful for the many family and friends who
helped with this event. Most especially to Joe and Frances Lopez, owners
of the Gallista Gallery, for their generosity and kindness. If you like art,
this gallery is must-see.
