Avatar held its fourth annual Santafest on December 7 benefiting Summit County Children Services. Avatar employees, customers, suppliers and families joined together for a night of tasty food, holiday cheer, laughter, dancing and live music provided by Mark Gardner’s multi-talented band, The Lizards. Participants donated hundreds of new toys which will be displayed in The Holiday Toy Room for children and provided at no cost to their caregivers such as foster parents and grandparents.
“It’s the time of year when we have the opportunity to give back for our many blessings and enjoy each other’s company as well,” remarked Linda Gardner, Avatar President.
Linda and Mark personally delivered the toys to Summit County Children’s Services with an Avatar van.
