Belz Factory Outlet World - Las Vegas Hosts Boys and Girls Clubs of Henderson ToyWorks Drive

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (November 26, 1997) - Belz Factory Outlet World - Las Vegas will host a kick-off celebration for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Henderson ToyWorks Drive December 2, 1997 at 4:00 p.m. Complete with entertainment by the Boys and Girls Club, Belz Factory Outlet World will also unveil amazing holiday decorations that will grace the interior of the mall.

The purpose of the ToyWorks Drive is to collect new gifts for the 3,000 members of The Boys and Girls Clubs of Henderson whose families may not be able to afford gifts during the holiday season. Last year's drive brought in hundreds of gifts for the youth of Henderson.

The ToyWorks Drive helps the club achieve their mission: to enable the youth of Henderson to develop and achieve their potential as human beings.

"It is a privilege to be a part of such an exciting project. The ToyWorks Drive is a great way to start the holiday season and contribute to the community," says Andrew J. Groveman, senior vice president of marketing and administration, Belz Enterprises.

The Becker Group, a holiday décor company based in Baltimore, has designed holiday decorations exclusively for Belz Factory Outlet World - Las Vegas. The decorations include a 25-foot Jack-in-the-box, beautifully decorated Christmas trees, a Santa's workshop and thousands of lights. With the help of the Becker Group, Belz Factory Outlet World will be transformed into an extraordinary ToyWorks factory.
