Hope for the Best

By Erin

Yesterday in Got Plans?, a hungry, yet philanthropic reader asked if Michel Richard Citronelle would again host Sweet Hope. For those who are not familiar with it, this is an event that offers free admission, dessert, drinks and entertainment to those who bring a new, unwrapped toy for the patients at St Jude Children's Research Hospital. I'm pleased to report that the charity event will take place next Saturday, Dec. 9 from 1-3 p.m., at the restaurant.

The party offers those mind-blowing, belt-loosening desserts that make Citronelle famous, plenty of bubbly and a little festive eggnog. As for the unwrapped toys, recipients range from babies to teenagers, so the suggested gift list varies from infant activity centers and Mr. Potato Head to board games, CDs and gift certificates. They ask that you avoid stuffed animals, cloth toys, clothes, candy, food or used items.

Would it be appropriate to bring kids to this event?
