Lund and Company Wins First TOYPAC Raffle; Phase II Raffle Kicks Off Today

TOYPAC Donors Are Eligible to Win a Toy Fair ’15 or Travel Prize Package

May 6, 2014 | The Toy Industry Association (TIA) is pleased to announce that Lund and Company Invention, L.L.C. has been selected as the winner of the Toy Political Action Committee (TOYPAC) Phase I raffle drawing, which was held on May 5, 2014; the company will receive a Toy Fair ’15 prize package, including free booth space, accommodations and travel.

Every TIA member company that submitted a Prior Approval Form — which allows TOYPAC to contact company personnel listed on the form to ask for financial contributions — was entered into the raffle.

Rolling out the second phase of the TOYPAC participation campaign, TIA today announced that individuals who donate to TOYPAC now until May 31, 2014 will be eligible to win a Toy Fair ’15 or personal travel prize package.

Financial TOYPAC contributions are especially crucial as the important 2014 mid-term elections near. Strong member support of TOYPAC will help to assure that the toy industry remains on the radar of key legislators and continues to have a meaningful presence in the political arena.

“TOYPAC enables TIA to collect voluntary personal donations from the Association’s members … combine those funds into a more substantial amount … and direct those contributions to support key legislators on both sides of the aisle through a transparent process,” said Ed Desmond, TIA’s executive vice president of external affairs. “This helps TIA and its member companies engage elected officials across the country on issues that directly impact your businesses.”

Individuals who submit a Prior Approval Form and make a TOYPAC contribution of $100 or more will be eligible to win one of two prize packages of their choosing, valued at up to $2,800:

Toy Fair Package (awarded to winner’s company)

  • FREE 10x10 booth space OR 100 additional sq. ft. at Toy Fair 2015

Travel Package (awarded to winner)

  • Up to $1,000 for two round-trip tickets to a destination of your choice in the continental U.S.

Participants will receive a raffle entry for every $100 that they donate, up to $5,000. Click here to make a contribution. The raffle closes on May 31, 2014; the winner will be announced on June 2, 2014.
