Uniting leaders from the toy and baby products industries for a special evening of entertainment and fundraising, the Toys “R” Us Children’s Fund recently hosted its 23rd annual gala in New York City, raising $5.2 million to keep children safe and help them in times of need. The event was hosted by comedian Martin Short, who has won both Emmy and Tony awards, and featured a performance by Grammy Award-winning and best-selling recording artist Barry Manilow.

This celebration of charitable giving highlighted the Toys “R” Us Children’s Fund’s philanthropic programs and honored some of its signature partners, who received significant monetary grants or product donations in the past year. The benefit has raised more than $82 million since its inception in 1985 and continues to be one of the largest single-night fundraisers held in New York City.
