The holiday season can be a wonderful and joyous time of year, filled with hope, family and – especially for young children – the excitement from unwrapping a gift from a loved one. Of course, the holidays aren’t all about gifts, but presents are one of the easiest ways to spark joy in young people. Unfortunately, many families cannot afford the gift of giving, which is why sister courses Rio Secco Golf Club and Cascata Golf Club are partnering with Toys for Tots to bring holiday happiness to kids in need.
Before December 14, 2020, drop off a brand-new, unwrapped toy at either Rio secco or Cascata to receive 20 percent off golf fees or 20 percent off your restaurant purchase. Guests who drop off toys will also have their names entered in a drawing for a free round of golf or a free lunch.*
“2020 has been an extraordinary year that has affected everyone, and perhaps none more so than the children in our community,” Said Mark Blais, Rio Secco and Cascata director of marketing. “We wanted to do something good for the kids and somehow end their year on a positive note. Our goal is to collect as many toys as possible before December 14, encouraging direct donations to the Toys for Tots Las Vegas organization, and ultimately bring some joy to these children in need. Help us put a smile on these little faces – drop off a toy at Rio Secco and Cascata.”

To help less fortunate families, Marine Toys for Tots was founded in 1947 when Marine Corps Reserve Major and director of public relations at Warner Brothers Bill Hendricks could not find an organization to distribute his wife’s handcrafted dolls to young children. Seeing a need, Hendricks enlisted the help of his fellow Marines in his Los Angeles who collected and distributed more than 5,000 toys that year. The organization grew from there and was eventually established as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit charity in 1991 with the help and support of the Marine Corps.
In the more than 60 years since Major Hendricks started Toys for Tots, the organization has distributed more than 584 million toys to more than 265 million children. And just last year, Toys for Tots collected and gave more than 19 million brand-new, unwrapped toys to more than 7.3 million less-fortunate children in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to work with Toys for Tots and be a part of their extraordinary mission,” said Andy Elliot, general manager of Cascata Golf Club . “We’ve all seen the light in a child’s eyes when they unwrap a gift from a loved one. It’s heartwarming.”
