Atlanta’s LGBT partygoers got decked out in their holiday finest and took over AmericasMart this weekend for the 13th Annual Toy Party & Silent Auction, presented as always by For The Kid In All Of Us (FTK).
FTK mixed it up a little bit for this year’s holiday party and charity toy drive, moving the event from its traditional Sunday night spot to Saturday night and extending the party time one hour longer. Also the lovely ladies from Jungle drag favorites The Other Show performed and served as official hosts of the VIP Experience.
The donated toys piled up as DJ Sed The Saint provided beats throughout the night and, following The Other Show performance and FTK Board President Brian Isbell introducing the rest of the board, partygoers packed the dance floor and stayed there throughout the remainder of the evening.
Beneficiaries for the event included AID Atlanta, All About Developmental Disabilities, Atlanta’s Children Shelter, Childkind, CHRIS Kids, Cool Girls, Cords of Life, Decatur Housing Authority, Devereux Georgia, Easter Seals North Georgia, East Lake Foundation, Fulton County Juvenile Court, Hillside, Jerusalem House, Lutheran Services of Georgia, Malachi’s Storehouse, Our House, and SafePath Children’s Advocacy Center.
Keep an eye out for FTK’s next big fundraiser, Backpack In The Park taking place in Piedmont Park next summer.
