Thank you Chicagoland Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade once again for aiding Arianna Wings.
This was our seventh year for Andy and I working with Kelly to aid this family’s financial strains, due to mounting medical expenses. Thank you once again for your generous donations of toys and product for this worthy cause. Thank you TFT /Lester and Toy Queen Bee, aka Gwen Fox, and your young staff. We were able to raise some money this past 7/12/2019 for the featured child this year and give her hope and determination to be all she can be.

THE 42ND ANNUAL
TOYS FOR TOTS
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2019
Dan Ryan Woods Starts at 9:30am
Celebrating our 41st year !
"The World's Greatest Motorcycle Parade" began in 1978 and has since become an annual tradition in Chicago on the first Sunday in December.
Each year 40,000 to 50,000 motorcycle riders come to Chicago to ride together and donate toys for needy children.
All motorcyclists are welcome to participate in The Parade, provided they meet the following two requirements. Every rider must bring at least one new, unwrapped toy to donate, and each motorcycle must be street legal, meaning it must display a current license plate.
And please consider becoming a TFT Parade volunteer. It takes many hands to organize The Chicago TFT Parade. Help is always needed.
Thanks for your support!
