The Toys for Tots Literacy Program was launched in March 2008, which offers the nations most economically disadvantaged children the ability to compete academically and to succeed in life by providing them direct access to books and educational resources that enhance their ability to read and to communicate effectively.
Dr. Gandhi was noted as being very happy to participate in MGE’s annual event in St. Petersburg Florida with the U. S. Marines and participating in a campaign that brings not only a smile to children during the holidays, but gives them a fighting chance to become successful in life.
The CEO MGE was quoted as saying, “We are honored to help bring the glimmer of hope in these children’s eyes, there is nothing more rewarding. In a sometimes-uncertain world we can only decide to create certainty for these children by demonstrating in a shoulder-to-shoulder effort that every child’s life and future IS important.”
The annual event at MGE was co-hosted by the MGE Leadership Class that Dr. Gandhi is an alumnus to. A phenomenal dinner prior to the auction was provided by one of the best restaurants in St. Petersburg Florida, Café Ponte. Some of the auction items featured were autographed memorabilia of well-known celebrities such as Derek Jeter, Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Namath and Wayne Gretzky; as well as diamond bracelets and Rebecca Minkoff handbags just to name a few.
To top off the evening The U.S. Marines awarded eight of the attendees who went above and beyond the call of duty for their donations and contributions a Three Star General Commander awards.
