Thousands of Toys Donated to DJ's Effort


The staff from two of the biggest nightclubs on the Las Vegas Strip put together their annual donation to the KLUC Morning Zoo toy drive.

The staff of XS and Tryst Nightclubs raised money all year long for this drive. This year they were able to raise $171,000 for toys. The employees went to a local Wal-Mart, taking over the toy department. The shopping extravaganza collected more than 11,000 toys and 138 bikes. The final receipt for the shopping trip was more than 150-feet long.

“We are truly fortunate to be in a position to give back to the community each year,” said Jesse Waits, co-owner and managing partner of XS and Tryst Nightclubs. “Our staff always looks forward to this event as it gives us the chance to relive our own childhood, picking out our favorite toys and gifts.”

The toys will be distributed through HELP of Southern Nevada. The toys from the nightclubs are part of Chet Buchanan from radio station KLUC yearly effort. He lives on top of a 30-foot high scaffolding 24 hours a day for 12 straight days to help bring in toys for the less fortunate.
