Making a Difference in Our Community: The Holiday Gift Drive

Since 2001, the annual Holiday Gift Drive has made a difference in the Southern Palm Beach County community. Now benefiting 4,000 children, the 14th Annual Holiday Gift Drive has grown from a garage to a community-wide event.
The gift drive relies solely on the generosity within our own community. Spirit of Giving works with its 60 member organizations to collect wish lists from in need children all over Palm Beach County. Items from the children’s wish lists are turned into Christmas ornaments, which are put on display all over Southern Palm Beach County at offices, stores and restaurants. People who wish to contribute have the choice to take an ornament and purchase the gift that the child has asked for, or they can donate. People can also donate new, boxed toys to a number of Spirit of Giving’s drop off locations all around Boca Raton.
New to the community is Prime Steak and Fondue Haus The Little Chalet, conveniently located at the corner of SE 5th and Federal Highway in Boca Raton. The Marcinellis are the family behind this cult-favorite destination restaurant, who famously introduced fondue to Brazil. To celebrate their grand opening month and to graciously give back to their new hometown, The Little Chalet will donate 100% of all dessert fondue sales to Spirit of Giving’s Holiday Gift Drive.
The Little Chalet offers a variety of mouthwatering options allowing guests to savor the diverse flavors of Europe. Cheese fondues are made with cheeses such as Emmental, Grand Cru, Parmesan and Blue Cheese, while wine fondues are made with red wine and a homemade beef broth, creating a bourguignon-style sauce. For dessert, guests can indulge in The Little Chalet’s gourmet Lindt chocolate fondue creations, developed in-house by owner Ricky Marcellini. During the fundraiser, dessert fondues must be purchased in addition to at least one (1) main course meal in order to make the donation.
There’s still time to “fondue something good!” Visit The Little Chalet now through November 15th to take advantage of this sweet occasion. To make a reservation, please call (561) 325-8000 or visit their website. For more information on Spirit of Giving or to learn more about the Holiday Gift Drive, send us an email
