NUTLEY, NJ - Singers sang, the Nutley High School Brass Ensemble played, and the community turned up in droves to support the Chieffo Family's annual toy drive and block party on Gerard Rd. in Nutley Saturday night. 

Michael and Michelle Chieffo, and their family, have been hosting the annual event for years. The beneficiaries of the toy drive include Clara Maas Pediatrics, a Women's Shelter and NY Presbyterian Pediatric Cancer Center. 

Among the "celebrities" who came out to support the event were Nutley Board of Education President Danny Carnicella, Commissioner Mauro Tucci, Nutley Women's Networking Group President Dorothy Huey, "Mr V." of the Nutley High School Marching band, the CEO of Clara Maas Hospital, BOE Trustees Fred Scalera and Frank DeMaio and countless new friends who came out to support the Chieffo's labor of love.
