The National Hotel, Collins Avenueâ€™s elegant and cinematic Art Deco hotel, is hosting a Joy/Toy Drive, on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 benefiting The Childrenâ€™s Home Society of Florida. Guests will have the option of donating an unwrapped toy or purchasing the gift of Joy on location. Gift of Joy donations are used to purchase tickets for South Florida families to experience local, family-friendly attractions such as the Miami Childrenâ€™s Museum, Zoo Miami and Parrot Jungle among others.
Each donation will provide guests with a complimentary drink at the hotelâ€™s Blues Bar and live entertainment by the talented team at LIVE! at the National. Participation is encouraged but necessary. Guests can drop off their donated toy(s) at valet or enter to submit their donation toward the purchase of a Joy. The Toy/Joy drive provides for families and underprivileged children in South Florida during the holidays. This year, applications for assistance have far exceeded the amount of resources available. The National Hotel hopes to change that by way of this Joy / Toy drive. #Onlyatthenational
