1500 Broward kids meet Santa, MC Hammer

More than 1,500 deserving young people up to age 17 attended  BSO’s 17th annual “Toys for Tots & Teens” event Saturday at the RonCochran Public Safety Building, where BSO handed out thousands of toys to some of the county’s most underprivileged kids.

Every child who participates got a toy and a chance to meet three-time Grammy Award-winner and Cash4Gold spokesman MC Hammer, not to mention Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Each year, BSO school resource deputies and Broward County School Board staff select the children who most need and deserve a helping hand around the holidays.

The sponsors who generously helped make this year’s BSO Toys for Tots & Teens toy giveaway possible include the Florida Marlins, Crime Stoppers of Broward County, Sam’s Club, Walmart and Cash4Gold.
