Toy Donations to benefit the United Way

Tobacco Road Sports Cafe has decided to spread the holiday cheer even further, so in addition to sponsoring the United Way in the Triangle Christmas Tree Challenge, we are accepting new, age appropriate, unwrapped toy donations. These toys will give kids in our community a very merry Christmas, which in itself is a great reward.

But to show our appreciate for your support of the United Way, we are offering a raffle for anyone who brings in a toy donation. For each toy you bring in, you will be entered to win 2 tickets to the Duke vs. Maryland game (for the Durham location) or the Duke vs. Florida State game (for the Raleigh location). As if that wasn't enough, you will have the opportunity to take the half-time, half-court shot for a chance to win $10,000!

So don your Santa hat and satisfy your inner child for the sake of putting a smile on a child's face this Christmas.

Triangle Christmas Tree Challenge

If you've been to downtown Durham lately, you may have noticed a plethora of Christmas trees adorning the Diamond View Park, right outside DPAC. In case you didn't know, these trees represent local non-profits, vying to win up to $5,000 to benefit their missions. Tobacco Road Sports Cafe is excited to announce our sponsorship of the United Way of the Greater Triangle's tree.

Working with the United Way we realized, not everyone will have a Merry Christmas this year. So rather than decorating our tree with glittering lights and festive ornaments, we decided to donate our tree to single mother and her 8 year old son.

This is just a small gesture when there are 206,941 individuals in our community who are living in poverty, and 68.142 of those are children. In order to help more of these people, we need you to VOTE for our tree and help the United Way win this contest, and in turn, give back to our neighbors. You can vote online, by visiting the contest's website or by texting TREE49 to 46988. Voting ends December 18th, so please get your vote in before time runs out!

In addition to the competition, we will be accepting toy donations at our Durham location. All toys will go to the United Way of the Greater Triangle for families with young children in our community.
