SUNRISE, Fla. – Chauvet employees, don’t only know how to bring popular lighting products to market, they’re also very good at working together to brighten the holidays for children in their community. The Chauvet team pooled their talents, time and resources together to distribute over 400 toys to kids in the Christmas in the Village Toy Giveaway, which was held December 21st in West Park, Florida.
Receiving brightly wrapped holiday presents was only part of the fun for the kids from 60 families who attended the festive event. The Chauvet team also entertained guests at the holiday gathering with live DJ performances, games and a very popular “bounce house.”
Chauvet employees voted in early December to make the Christmas in the Village Toy Giveaway their adopted charity for the holidays. The event is sponsored by S.H.E.A.R. (Sharing Hope, Empowerment and Reaction), a Miami Gardens based faith-based community outreach organization founded in 2001.
“This was a grassroots charitable activity that came from the heart,” said S.H.E.A.R. president Anthony Durden, who is also a Chauvet employee. “I’m not surprised by the generosity of the Chauvet team members. I have the privilege of working with them every day; so I know that they’re very caring people. Sometimes the holidays can be tough for children whose families are in difficult circumstances, but the Chauvet team stepped up to make this event a great success and give some very deserving kids a Christmas experience they’ll always remember.”
