6th Annual Adopt-A-Family Fundraiser Spreads Holiday Cheer for Underserved Families in Southern Nevad
Delicious food, toys, gifts, household items and holiday spirit were among the items delivered to needy families by The Ogden Family Foundation during its 6th Annual Adopt-A-Family event hosted by Fry Dayz Fish and Wings located at 855 E Twain Ave #107, Las Vegas, NV 89169.

Thanks to the generous support of donors, sponsors, volunteers, and the help of the 1st Annual Holiday Hoops -Basketball Charity Toy Drive Event hosted by Power 88.1 and KSNV News 3 Las Vegas, The Ogden Family Foundation was able to adopt 15 families, which was nearly 85 people this year. The festive event featured a surprise visit by Santa Claus, live singing and a choir performance adding to the holiday joy.

“With the generous support of our sponsors and community we had another successful Toy Drive and Adopt-A-Family event, which allowed us to provide much needed assistance to the families for the holidays,” said Kema Ogden, Co-Founder of The Ogden Family Foundation. “This year marks our 6th annual Adopt-A-Family Event. Since our, inaugural, event we have aided approximately 600 families throughout the holidays and we hope to continue to help the Las Vegas community for years to come.”

Several organizations benefited from this event by identifying participating families, including Boys and Girls Club, Community Outreach Medical Center, Boys Town Nevada, and other great community partners.

Sponsors included Fry Dayz with their delicious catered meal and event location, Top Notch-The Health Center, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Nothing Bundt Cakes, ASP Cares, Red Carpet Moving Company, KB Homes, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, and Sun City Financial. Family Sponsors included the Bayer Family, Marvick Family, Driscoll Family, Richardson Family, Brandon Family, Tandoi Family, Trimmer Family, Brown Family, Zilliken Family, Carver Family, and Kelley Family.

Adopted families were also given necessities such as clothing, groceries, hygiene items, furniture, movie tickets, and Walmart and restaurant gift cards. Most importantly, toy drive items were provided to families by the Las Vegas community. New unwrapped toys were brought to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Las Vegas neighborhood locations and other local businesses such as Top Notch – The Health Center and Brain and Body.
