Boyds Supports Cradles to Crayons

November 13, 2013

“Friends of Cradles to Crayons” is a group of young philanthropists and
community activists in the Greater Philadelphia region who support the
mission of Cradles to Crayons. They join a host of people and organizations
that have come together to make a difference in their communities in order
to make life better for children in need in the area – by donating children’s
items, hosting product collection drives, volunteering at the organization’s
West Conshohocken warehouse, contributing funds, and serving as ambassadors
for Cradles to Crayons throughout the area. Local disadvantaged and underserved

beneficiaries of the money raised by ticket sales to the event and Boyds donated
a portion of the evenings proceeds.

The Philly Pops

October 10, 2013

“We love host/cabaret vocalist Eddie Bruce, so when we heard that he’d be
singing with the Philly Pops this weekend, the first thing we thought was, “dag,
where’s the pre-bash?” Boyds on Chestnut Street came up with the answer,
as well as the location. Frank Giordano, president of the Pops, and Michael
Krajewski, new music director, thanked Bruce for joining the orchestra for its
“Viva Philadelphia” program at the Kimmel. And why did they hold the party
at Philly’s salon of sartorial-ism? “Boyds’ owner Ralph Yaffe and Eddie went to
school together — George Washington High School — and Ralph offered to
share in Eddie’s excitement,” says Bruce’s buddy and PR rep Sharla Feldscher.”
