Toys for Tampa Bay 2020

On Dec. 5, 2020, Harwood Financial Group kicked off its first annual charity event in support of Toys for Tots Tampa Bay. The Harwood team and Hyde Park Living Magazine presented the Marines with a huge assortment of donated toys and a $20,000 check, the largest donation the Tampa Bay organization has ever received.

During the event,

the Tampa Metropolitan Youth Orchestra played favorite holiday songs while guests enjoyed delicious eats from Craving Donuts, The Bacon Boss, Taco Bus and other food trucks. The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Thunderbug made a special appearance, as did holiday performers on stilts, and Santa Bob Eddy and his horse, Laredo Lass.

Other special guests included Mayor Jane Castor, the Tampa Police Mounted Horse Division and the Tampa Fire Department.

Thank You, Tampa Bay Marine Corps and Toys for Tots!


Harwood Financial Group sincerely appreciates how the Tampa Marine Corps brought our Toys for Tots event to life. They not only generously gave of their time during the event, they loaded hundreds of toy donations into their Marine tactical vehicles for delivery to children in need.

We couldn’t be more pleased with this year’s Toys for Tots celebration and look forward to many more charity events in the years to come!
