TATAS for TOYS 2017 – Shopping Spree

"Tatas for Toys" PDX Portland "Aaron Ross" "whos the ross" late-night talk show live benefit Doernbecher funny shopping spree comedian improv special Xmas Christmas Oregon

Twas a few nights before Xmas, and all through the store, many a beauty was stirring, buying toys & much more…

TATAS for TOYS 2017 found comedian Aaron Ross + PDX’s Finest North Pole Dancers raising $5,000 to benefit Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. After delighting a packed house at Dante’s, the few, the proud, the nocturnal went on a once in a lifetime shopping spree to purchase presents for the kiddos at Doernbecher this holiday season!

Our small pack of Sexy Santas hit the ground ‘a runnin’, nabbing cart after cart of dolls, bikes, board games, sporting goods, art supplies & anything else that would brighten up a kid’s day, night & upcoming year. It felt like there wouldn’t enough Xmas trees in Oregon to put all these toys under!!

After counting thousands of dollars in cash (mostly in ones) to purchase all of the goodies, this Merry band of Sleighers made it to Doernbecher just before sunrise, in order to unpack our bountiful haul.
