Mayor Andre Dickens attended the 3rd annual toy drive presented by the restaurateur Ebony Austin owner of Nouveau Bar & Grill at the Cascade Skating Rink. Over 3,000 families registered to show up to receive toys for their children; and the line stretched nearly a mile.

Guests were greeted by the V-103 live remote team, a hot chocolate bar and a gingerbread house for the kids. Upon entering the building, there were a plethora of toys from karaoke machines, bicycles, Layla dolls, trucks, Hot Wheels tracks, board games, portable basketball goals, clothing, Xboxes, laptops, BEATS by DRE, Timberland and UGG boots,many other toys kids love.

“This year, we wanted to make Christmas special for the children. We have three Black Santas in the building and the All Star Kids mascots. We will be giving away college scholarships to four Spelman students and surprising three handpicked families with newly renovated townhomes, fully furnished and rent paid for one year,” said Ebony Austin.

Teaming up with Girls Who Brunch nonprofit, JP Morgan Chase Bank VP of College Park, the G.O.A.T.
