Kids Charity of Tampa Bay to Benefit from Local Businesses’ Annual Holiday Toy DriveNov. 28, 2011, Tampa, Fla. – Arnstein & Lehr LLP is pleased to announce that it has joined forces with Cadence Bank and Lazydays Tampa for the third annual holiday toy drive to benefit Kids Charity of Tampa Bay. Members of the community are invited to bring new, unwrapped toys to a number of Tampa-area locations between November 21 and December 17, 2011.

On December 17 from 9 am to 1 pm, a grand finale event will be held at the Carrollwood Branch located at 13246 N. Dale Mabry, where Lazydays Tampa will fill a RV with the donated toys and deliver them to Kids Charity of Tampa Bay. With each gift, donors will be entered to win a four-day/three-night vacation, courtesy of Omni Hotels & Resorts in Orlando, Fla.

This is the third year in which the three area businesses have collaborated to bring the holidays to local children in need.

“Our partnership with Cadence Bank and Lazydays Tampa is one example of businesses in our community joining forces to benefit those in need,” said Ronald B. Cohn, a partner at Arnstein & Lehr. “The current economic climate presents challenges for organizations like Kids Charity of Tampa Bay because charitable donations as a whole are down and more families than ever are in need. We are pleased to help bring the holidays to children who may not have new toys this year, and hope our clients and community friends will join us in this endeavor.”

Gifts will be collected at Arnstein & Lehr’s Tampa office, located at Two Harbour Place, 302 Knights Run Ave., Ste. 1100; Lazydays Tampa at 6130 Lazydays Blvd. in Seffner; or at any Cadence Bank branch:
