At this year’s Bel Natal Holiday Gala, held on December 6, a group of 47 Fisk students enjoyed a fun-filled evening for a worthy cause. Students in attendance collected and will distribute over 100 toys to the children of the Andrew Jackson Housing Community.
Organizers Winterborne Jones and Sherifat Lawal were assisted by members of the Henry Tanner Arts Society and began the evening with a tour of the Van Vechten Gallery conduced by Fisk Museum Curator Victor Simmons. The evening concluded with a reception in Cravath Hall, and in addition to the toy drive, patrons additionally contributed $150 to cover food costs at the Andrew Jackson Community’s annual holiday event.
Toys collected at Bel Natal will be distributed on Saturday, December 20. Persons wishing to contribute toys can contact Winterborne Jones at 615-482-2398 or email@example.com through December 19.
