KLUC 98.5 FM Toy Drive
KLUC 98.5 FM, XS, Tryst and Drai’s joined forces today to break the KLUC 98.5 FM Toy Drive record with a total donation of toys worth over $68,000 (Photo: © Erik Kabik/ RETNA/ www.erikkabik.com).  

This was the annual XS/Tryst/Drai’s After Hours donation to the KLUC (98.5 FM) toy drive.  More than 100 staff members from the XS/Tryst/Drai’s After Hours staffs participated in the shopping spree at Wal-Mart and then unloaded everything at Nevada Power.  The total bill at Wal-Mart was $68,429. They spent more than $32,000 last year for the same event so they more than doubled the total and broke their own record. 

There was a helicopter flying overhead that was loaded up full of toys as well for the toy drive.  They donated more than 200 bikes. The majority of the toys/gifts were loaded into a tractor trailer provided by Leader Express and a stretch Cadillac Escalade provided by Presidential Limousine of Las Vegas.

Las Vegas photographer Erik Kabik send us these great photos and comments:

I arrived at the Nevada Power parking lot for the KLUC 98.5 FM Toy Drive today and was overwhelmed when I saw an 18 wheeler pull up, escorted by LV Metro.  It was packed full of toys that XS, TRYST & DRAI’S was donating to the Toy Drive.  A helicopter full of toys circled overhead with a Santa waving out to the crowd below.

The team from XS, TRYST & DRAI’S Nightclubs had visited the Walmart on West Charleston earlier in the day and purchased over $68,000.00 worth of toys. They loaded up the truck and then the partners and employees from XS, Tryst & Drai’s lined up to unload the trucks at the toy drive with some helping hands from LV Metro too. It was a very emotional event as so many people pulled together to give back to our community, and it’s not something you see everyday.
