Redwood City, CA - December 6, 2009 - On Tuesday, December 15th the Avenir Restaurant Group and Milagros restaurant will host a very special fundraiser to support the Redwood City Fire/Police/PAL Toy and Book Drive. The entire community is invited to join in the fun to support a great program that provides toys, books, and much-needed holiday spirit to underprivileged children in Redwood City.
Throughout that day and night, 20% of the receipts from Milagros (when identified as a “Toy Drive” patron) will be donated directly to the Toy and Book drive.
