UGLY SWEATER Holiday Party @ The Manchester

UGLY SWEATER Holiday Party @ The Manchester |  |  |

I wanted to reach out to you regarding my annual Ugly Sweater Holiday party benefiting TOYS FOR TOTS Charlotte.
What? Every year I host an Ugly Sweater Holiday Party where guests bring toys for donation or pay $10 at the door and wear their ugliest sweater.

How does the Toys for Tots program work?
The mission of the program “is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”

When? Wednesday, November 20th from 5:30 to 8:30pm (trying to get ahead of all the other holiday parties).

Why? Great cause!! We always collect a lot of large boxes filled with toys on top of collecting cash to go by more toys.

Where? THE MANCHESTER (1812 south blvd, charlotte, Southend)

We have a contest for ugliest sweater (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) with prizes donated by local vendors.

I host this party myself so I don’t have an advertising budget. Can you guys work with me??

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
Finnessa
