On Saturday, November 9th, The Original Cupcakery & The Heads With Hearts Presents: The 3rd Annual Holiday Toy Drive & Industry Mixer, benefitting both Vogel Alcove and Kidscapes Foundation. Now in its third year, the event has moved to an exciting new home at the Dallas Holocaust Museum Center for Education and Tolerance, located in Downtown Dallas at 211 N Record St #100, Dallas, TX 75201.

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust, and teaching a moral and ethical response to prejudice, hatred and indifference, for the benefit of all humanity. Because of their mission, this venue serves as a new and outstanding backdrop for a benefit providing much needed donations to two Dallas-based organizations that specifically aid children. Guests will mix and mingle in the event space with professionals and enthusiasts from the beauty and fashion industry, including the artist who established The Heads with Hearts, Dallas photographer Steven D. Hill.

Admission for the event is simply a new, unwrapped toy or board game for children between the ages of 1-16; one per guest for entry, though additional items brought by especially generous guests is certainly welcome and would be of great value. The event is sure to include many treats for attendees, including a limited supply of complimentary cupcakes from the event sponsor, The Original Cupcakery.

Every toy donated will be given directly to Vogel Alcove, an organization that works diligently to aid children from homeless families in the Dallas area; and Kidscapes Foundation, which uses education, fitness, and art to reach children living with HIV/AIDS and disadvantaged youngsters struggling with obesity. Both organizations are experiencing increased demand for resources, so events and drives including this one are vital to help fulfill a growing need. Over 300 toys and games were provided through the last Holiday Toy Drives and this year its hosts have a goal of doubling that amount.

Join The Original Cupcakery & The Heads with Hearts between 6:00PM and 8:00PM on November 9th at the Dallas Holocaust Museum for a memorable evening and venue, all for a wonderful cause and to get a head start on spreading some holiday cheer.

Guests are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy for children ages 1-16 to the Holiday Toy Drive.

Note: Viewing of the Holocaust Museum during the event is allowed but an additional fee applies.
