19-11-15 Toy Run check 1 W.jpg

Motorcycle riders raised $9,500 during the 27th annual Toy Run for the Sun Valley Board of Realtors’ Holiday Basket program--more than $1,500 over last year’s total. Seventy-five motorcycles rolled down the valley from Grumpy’s in Ketchum to the Silver Dollar Saloon in Bellevue on Sept. 7. On Wednesday, representatives from the Toy Run presented a real check along with a facsimile for $9,500 to Sun Valley Realtors Give, the agency that handles the holiday baskets and their distribution. From left, Tiffany Cross, Diane Walker, Lark Smith, Brandee Smith, Ellie Powell and Francisco Herrera took part in the presentation. Brandee Smith, Sun Valley Realtors Give’s executive director, talked about the importance of this money: “This $9,500 represents approximately one-third of our operating budget. The dedication these women give to the Toy Run and the generosity of the community continues to inspire us and make the Holiday Basket program possible.” Distribution day for the holiday baskets will be Dec. 14 at the Community Campus in Hailey.
