Since 1975, there’s not been one holiday without a Fasone party. Whether it was a swanky affair at The Simpson house, a midnight screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Tivoli, or a “quiet” gathering in the basement of The Buzzard Beach the whole marketing community was invited.
In 1988 something changed. Maybe it was the economy. Maybe we had become respectable members of the marketing community. Maybe, like The Grinch, our hearts grew two sizes that year. But that was the year the agency “adopted” Charles and Fran – two Kansas City kids who were being raised by their grandmother.
For several years the agency had been working through the Missouri Division of Family Services to provide Christmas gifts and groceries for Charles and Fran. But 1988 was the year we turned our annual holiday party into a true giving party – and not just for Charles and Fran, but for other families just like theirs.
Over the years Toys for Toddies has adopted more than 100 families and 296 kids. We’ve shopped, wrapped and bagged thousands of presents, more than 33,000 lbs. of groceries, 1,166 AA batteries and one Justin Bieber CD.
And with your help, we’re going to do it again this December.
