TAMPA, FL (Nov. 15, 2010) -- Superior Bank, Lazydays RV Supercenter and the Tampa law firm of Arnstein & Lehr LLP are organizing their second annual Happy Holidays Toy Drive to benefit children served by Kids Charity of Tampa Bay.

The toy drive will run from November 22 through a grand finale event on December 18. Those who donate toys may qualify to win a four-day, three-night stay at beautiful South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island. The winner will be announced December 20.

“We are so pleased to again team with Superior Bank and Lazydays RV to ensure a bright holiday season for the children of Tampa,” said Ron Cohn, an Arnstein & Lehr partner. “I cannot think of a more worthy cause than inspiring hope and happiness in children during the holidays.”

Those who donate a new, unwrapped toy will qualify to win the vacation prize if they fill out a contest entry form and drop it off, along with their toy, at any Hillsborough, Pinellas or Pasco County Superior.

Bank location is at: Arnstein & Lehr’s Tampa office or at Lazydays RV Supercenter. Cash donations are welcome. Checks should be made payable to: Kids Charity of Tampa Bay.

Representatives will be on hand at each location to provide the entry forms, and collection boxes will be at each site to receive the toys.

On December 18 from 10 am to 4 pm, representatives from Arnstein & Lehr, Superior Bank and Lazydays RV will hold a grand finale event at the North Tampa Superior Bank location, where a Lazydays RV will be parked as a toy depository. Following the grand finale, the Lazydays RV will whisk the toys away to Kids Charity of Tampa Bay for distribution to the kids in need.

“We’re proud to be involved in such a tremendous undertaking to make Christmas possible for kids who really need some hope,” said Dana Philp, board member of the Lazydays Partners Foundation. “We at Lazydays have worked closely for years with Kids Charity of Tampa Bay to improve their daily lives. We’re very excited to be part of making their Christmas bright as well.”

“We are pleased to announce our continued partnership with Arnstein & Lehr in support of the 2010 Happy Holidays Toy Drive benefiting Kids Charity of Tampa Bay,” said David L. Biliter, executive vice president of Superior Bank. “Many area families and children have found themselves in very difficult times as a result of our current economy. The acts of caring and sharing with those who might not be able to enjoy their holiday giving traditions this year provides an extra measure of hope and faith for better times that lie ahead for Tampa Bay. We hope our bank's participation helps to strengthen our community's spirit for giving to those in need as our employees and many of our valued customers accept the invitation to help our area children with the Gift of a Toy!"

“We are elated that Arnstein & Lehr, Superior Bank, and Lazydays RV have once again chosen to give so generously to our children,” said Wayne Witczak, executive director of Kids Charity of Tampa Bay.
“Without their kindness, the holidays just wouldn’t have been as bright.”
