Set for December 3-5, the 21st annual Toys Tour, an annual weekend powerboat rally in Palatka, Fla., where participants bring thousands of gifts for children in need, is seeking corporate sponsorships for this year’s event. The news was announced in a press release yesterday from Toys Tour, Inc., the official entity behind the event.
