2021 Palm Beach Democratic Party Holiday Celebration & Toy Drive a Huge Success!

Hundreds of Toys Collected for PBC Kids!
Thank you, PBC Democrats!

 

A crowd of over 150 happy PBC Dems packed the ballroom of the Airport Hilton this past Friday, December 10, to celebrate the holiday season at our 2021 PBCDP Annual Holiday Celebration & Toy Drive - our first in 2 years!  Vaccinations were required, and a great time was had by everyone, dining & dancing, mixing & mingling with our PBC elected officials & fellow Dems -- and best of all, over 400 toys were donated for distribution to needy PBC kids! 

 

In addition to the evening's haul, additional toys also were collected by our Democratic clubs, caucuses & groups throughout the county to give to PBC children who otherwise might not have received a gift this holiday season.  A big Thank You to all PBC Dems & friends who donated toys this year and to everyone who was able to participate with us on the 10th -- we hope you enjoyed this festive evening!

 

We thought you would enjoy seeing photos of the celebration -- check out the photos of all the toys & all the happy D's by clicking here and also here!
