(New York, N.Y.) – More than 120 guests came to jingle and mingle with the NYC Mission Society’s Junior Society on Tuesday, December 2nd at a holiday party at Pilotage Fun & Hobby in Manhattan to benefit the nonprofit’s annual toy drive for underserved children.

The event was organized by Junior Society co-founders Brooke Laing and Cole Rumbough, as well as members Allison Ecung, Angelena Brack, Antonella Lemos, Liz Shafiroff, Natasha Das, and Taylor Burns. In addition to Pilotage, event sponsors were Insomnia Cookies, Apropo, and Mini Goodiez.


“We are extremely grateful for our Junior Society members, who annually display the spirit of the season by caring and sharing,” said Elsie McCabe Thompson, President of the NYC Mission Society. “The Junior Society, as well as others who have contributed to our annual toy drive, recognize that so many children in our city would welcome our support and special gifts this time of year.”


Toys collected at the midtown event will be added to other seasonal toy donations made to the NYC Mission Society, which distributes wrapped gifts to 1,500 children in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx this December.


The cocktail party began around 6 PM and lasted into the evening on the third annual #Giving Tuesday, a national day dedicated to supporting charitable causes. Pilotage was adorned with festive decorations lining shelves of toys.


In the center of the store, a colorful dais decked out in reds and greens was covered with glasses of bubby champagne and sparkling water, chocolates, cookies and other sweets. The room buzzed with guests chatting while they explored the aisles, choosing toys to purchase and place in a huge, wrapped box - that quickly began to overflow with gifts near the entrance. Another donation box was put out and promptly filled to the brim as well.


Pilotage will donate 20% of toy purchases to the NYC Mission Society’s toy drive through Saturday, December 13th. If you would like to contribute, please drop off new toys for boys and girls – ages six to 12 years old – at Minisink, NYC Mission Society’s flagship community center, at 646 Malcolm X Boulevard, before the toy drive ends.


The NYC Mission Society will hold a “wrap” party on Saturday, December 13th, during a “Ballin’ For Toys” Basketball Tournament, sponsored by the Harlem Chapter of the Order of the Feather Fraternity in association with Boyer Lodge #1. Supporters are encouraged to bring unwrapped toys – or $20 – to benefit children and youth served by the NYS Mission Society to the event, which runs from Noon to 5 PM.
