Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation helps to raise over $60,000 in toys and food for Troy’s Toy Drive 2010
Toronto, ON – Wrestling Legend Tiger Jeet Singh, his son former WWE Superstar Tiger Ali Singh and their dear friend Troy Newton spearheaded The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation’s efforts and has announced a record setting $60,000 in food and toys was raised as a result of Troy’s Toy Drive 2010, doubling the $30,000 raised last year.
This past Monday, Toronto’s #1 morning show Breakfast Television aired live from Troy’s Diner, with reporter Jennifer Valentyne covering over 1000 supporters attending during the day from across Ontario. Milton restaurateur Troy Newton donated all proceeds from the luncheon to the Toy Drive, as customers opened their hearts and pockets for the less fortunate over the 6 hour fundraiser.
Tiger Jeet Singh and his son Tiger Ali Singh signed hundreds of autographs and offered the crowd numerous speeches of encouragement, as did hockey legends Walter Gretzky and Johnny Bower.
Music was provided by numerous bands including the Salvation Army Brass Quartet and Milton Choristers, in addition to a special “Christmas Around The World” performance by recording artist Prita Chhabra and bhangra dancers from the Sonay Gabroo Punjab De (SGPD) team.
On Tuesday, Tiger Jeet Singh and Tiger Ali Singh also visited The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) to read and provide autographs for numerous children and parents. Accompanying the Tigers was their dear friend Troy Newton along with their respected family members.
As toys and Best Buy electronic items were distributed to the kids by Scotia Bank representatives for all the patients to use in the Hospital, Milton Today TV reporter and singer Kelly Macintyre sang a variety of Christmas carols for the kids alongside Prita Chhabra.
On hand throughout the entire Toy Drive event and visit to SickKids was Milton Today TV capturing all the behind the scene moments, which can be seen by visiting www.miltontoday.tv
“If it was not for the Tigers, my sister/business partner Crystal and team this would not be possible,” says Troy Newton.
“We’re very grateful to all the sponsors, and in particular our platinum supporters in Linesteel, Scotia Bank at Thompson/Main in Milton, Royal Park Homes and Best Buy Mobile at Bramalea City Centre for their support,” says Tiger Jeet Singh.
“I thank my buddy Troy for asking my father and I about one year ago to team up in organizing the toy drive and wrestlefest events, because it gave us the opportunity to bring people of different cultures and religions together for the greater good of humanity and give back to noble charities,” says Tiger Ali Singh.
