Mary Cheatham King Real Estate (MCKRE) and The Friendly Market are joining efforts to raise funds and toys for local families through their “Holiday Toy Drive & Wine Tasting” event on Friday, December 1, 2017. Toys will be donated to Eastern North Carolina’s Toys for Tots foundation, supporting families in our Crystal Coast area.

On Friday, December 1, families are invited to attend a “Holiday Toy Drive & Wine Tasting” event at The Friendly Market where wines will be served from vineyards impacted by the fires in Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Additionally, The Friendly Market will provide free samples from their upcoming holiday menu, including their standing rib roast, seasonal puff pastries, chicken salad with holiday relish and apple, strawberry, pecan salad as well as Christmas cookies and hot chocolate from Carolina Coffee Company. Admission is free, but a child’s toy or a monetary donation is appreciated. Those who choose to donate will be entered to win a “Friendly Market Favorites” gift basket valued at $100.

For those unable to attend the festivities on December 1, there are several opportunities to partake in the holiday toy drive. A fundraising website has been established at and will be live through December 8, 2017. The MCKRE team will to purchase additional toys on December 13 with all monetary donation collected. Toys for Tots donation boxes are also in place at The Friendly Market and at the Crystal Coast Keller Williams offices (5113 US 70 W, Suite A). On December 14, 2017, all toys will be turned over to the United States Marines with the Eastern North Carolina Toys for Tots Foundation who will ensure they will be given to Santa for delivery to local children and families in time for Christmas Day.
