Garf Cooper was well aware that Villages residents go above and beyond when it comes to the season of giving.
A Thursday morning pickleball tournament provided a fresh reminder.
Rather than paying an entry fee, participants in the recent advanced ability level 4.0, 4.5 open tournament, hosted by the Pickleball Community Volunteer Group and The Villages Recreation Department, were asked to donate a new, unwrapped toy for the Marine Corps League’s annual holiday effort.
Thanks to players’ generosity, 74 shiny new toys were added to the Toys for Tots collection.
