WEST ORANGE, NJ - Mayor Robert Parisi greeted hundreds of community members at Mayfair Farms on Dec. 5 during the annual Mayor's Sunshine Fund Holiday Toy Drive.

The West Orange community donated hundreds of gifts, which will be distributed to the children of struggling families in town.  

The atmosphere was energetic, friendly, and supportive as guests enjoyed several appetizer stations, and complimentary wine and beer while catching up with friends old and new.

Students from Roosevelt Middle School performed holiday and classical music for the crowd.

Due to Hurricane Sandy, the mayor did not hold the annual event last year, and was pleased that the turnout and donations were abundant.
