GTU Featured Guest

For four years now, each holiday season Tony Parks and his wife Natalie honor the memory of their late daughter Brooklyn, by giving to children in need. 

The ‘B is for Brooklyn’ Holiday Party will be held this Saturday, December 16 at Highland High School, 2166 S 1700 E in Salt Lake City, from 10:00am- 2:00pm. Family admission is $10.00, or one toy donation. Each monetary donation can be sent through Venmo @BrooklynRoadHome where 100% of all donations, toy and money, will go to the Candy Cane Corner (Road Home) and Spencer’s Wishes.

Special needs families and refugee families will receive free admission. Several dollars and toys have been donated already to make this possible.

This event served hundreds of families last year and is expected to help even more families this year. All expenses are paid for by the Parks family and generous volunteers. No donations are ever used to cover any cost.

Special guests including Disney Princesses, Santa, Magician Mike Hamilton, local mascots and the Utah Jazz Dunk Team will all be part of the entertainment.

Free prizes such as tickets to sporting events, restaurant gift cards and more.

Food and beverages will be available including Nathan’s famous hot dogs.
