â€œLast yearâ€™s toy drive was an overwhelming success thanks to the generous outpouring of donations from the LGBT community and our allies,â€ said Steve Adkins, president of the MDGLCC. â€œWeâ€™re really looking forward to turning the LGBT Visitor Center into Santaâ€™s workshop again this year.â€
Speaking of Santa, the jolly old elf himself will be making a special guest appearance at the event which will also feature special surprises and Sobe Jewelry selling a special edition Pride ring with proceeds benefiting the LGBT Visitor Center. Complimentary cocktails and a great food buffet will be served against the backdrop of DJ Sayho playing holiday and contemporary favorites.
