The Grizzlies are not only giving the gift of basketball to the Mid-South this holiday season but are doing their part to help make the holidays more joyful for those in need by hosting their Annual Holiday Toy Drive that benefits MIFA’s Holiday Hope Chest on Monday, Dec. 19 from 6-8 p.m. at the Hilton Memphis.

The entire Grizzlies team will be playing the role of Santa at the event that encourages fans to donate new, unwrapped gifts to help make every child’s holiday dreams come true. The new, unwrapped gifts that are collected will be donated to MIFA’s Holiday Hope Chest, which provides gifts for families in MIFA’s programs during the holidays.

The first 1,000 fans that are generous enough to contribute to the Memphis Grizzlies Holiday Toy Drive will have the opportunity to meet and receive autographs from Grizzlies players and coaches. Everyone else in attendance will get to enjoy a festive holiday setting that will include music, prize giveaways and a chance to take a picture with Santa Grizz, the Grizz Girls and the Claw Crew.
