The Happy Factory is a non-profit charitable organization, founded by Charles and Donna Cooley who to date, has shipped well over one million toys in the form of small cars and trucks. The Happy Factory also makes steam shovels for the developmentally disabled. The cars and steam shovels are not toys, but tools that can stimulate a child’s mind allowing them to think, become creative, and to cope with the world around them.
The more than one million toys have been delivered to more than 125 countries, to schools, hospitals, family shelters, churches, foundations, and many humanitarians’ organizations around the world. Anyone can deliver toys during their travels. Many local individuals have carried toys to children in need. Many of these children never owned a toy or had anything else of their own before the gift of a Happy Factory toy.
You can assist in continuing the mission of the Happy Factory by attending the Gala, sponsoring part of the evening, and/or contributing an auction item. It will be a great event, reminding us that we are truly blessed and can reach out to help others, especially the children of the world.
Tickets to the Gala are $50 each or $400 for a table of eight. They can be purchased by calling 435 586-8352 or visiting the Happy Factory located at 896 N 2175 West Circle.
Auction Items will be sold in both silent and live auction formats. Do you have an item or service you would like to contribute? Your generosity will be much appreciated.
Sponsorship levels for the evening are as follows:
Dinner Sponsor, with a donation of $2,500, will receive eight tickets to the gala, special recognition at the Gala and will treasure the blessing that comes from sharing. This contribution will cover many of the expenses of the evening to allow more of the evening’s contributions to go directly to the manufacture of the toys. They will also receive a matched set of cars and a steam shovel.
Steam Shovel Sponsors, with a donation of $1,500, will receive eight tickets to the Gala, recognition at the Gala, one steam shovel, and will understand the joy of being a benefactor to the Happy Factory allowing the creation of over 3,000 new toys.
