We are really excited about Holiday Extravaganza 2010 and know that lots of you are too! We have received lots of emails asking when registration begins and when the party is this year. So.. get out your calendars ladies… this is the information you have been waiting for.
2010 marks the second year for Holiday Extravaganza and, as promised, it is shaping up to be bigger and badder than our event last year.
If you were not one of the lucky 125 moms to attend last year you are probably wondering…What in the world is Holiday Extravaganza?
Holiday Extravaganza is Chester County Moms.com’s Annual Holiday event where we collect new, unopened and unwrapped toys for the Chester County Chapter for Toys for Tots. In exchange for your toy donations you are given raffle tickets for chances to win fabulous prizes. These fabulous prizes are hard to find toys, pricey toys, local business gift certificates, restaurant gift certificates and lots of other goodies. (Example: for every 1 toy that you donate you get X number of raffle tickets)
Frequently Asked Questions….
How much are tickets to Holiday Extravaganza? Admission is free .. your toy donation is your admission. All guests must be registered and have their ticket to attend the event. Keep reading for information on how to register.
Can I purchase extra raffle tickets? No. The toys you bring to donate to Toys for Tots will “buy” you your raffle tickets. You will receive 5 tickets for every toy that you donate. The maximum ticket amount is 50 per guest. You are welcome to bring more than 10 toys, we would love that, Toys for Tots would love it, but the maximum amount of tickets any guest can receive is 50.
Okay.. So, I want to come, how do I get a ticket? Only registered guests may attend this event. Anyone can register. Registration for the event will begin at 8:00PM on Monday, November 29,2010 . Last year the event was at full capacity (125 seats) in just under 3 hours, so if you would like to come to Holiday Extravaganza this year make sure you are online at 8:00PM on Monday, November 29th. This is a limited seating engagement so registration is required. There are 150 seats available this year. Once we reach full capacity we will switch to a waiting list.

If you want to come to the event we highly recommend that you schedule time to be online Monday November 29th at 8:00PM. We wouldn’t want to see you miss out on a super fun event.
