T
he Noblemen kicked off the Holiday Season with our annual Trolley Ride and it was truly a magical night! Every year The Noblemen and NobleWomen deliver Christmas to local families who have a child in hospice care and who is very likely facing their last Christmas. This year we gathered at Doc Taylor's and then loaded onto four Venture Tours busses before setting out to visit the families. Each family we visit has a "Noble Sponsor" who shops for Christmas gifts for everyone who lives in the house. We also have a group of volunteers who shop for food for each family. Each family we visit receives everything they will need to put out a wonderful Christmas dinner. This is an amazing night and we always succeed in delivering a heaping dose of Christmas cheer to families who are not necessarily celebrating the holidays. The greatest part of the evening is that we, The Noblemen and Women are often times the one's who receive the greater gift. It is our lives that are changed as the result of participating in this amazing night. Thanks so much to Doc Taylor's for hosting us every year, to Venture Tours for carrying us around town to visit the families, and to all of the sponsors and volunteers who make the Trolley Ride come together.

Every year The Noblemen put together our annual Toy Drive which provides Christmas to over 3000 local disadvantaged children. We put hundreds of plastic toy boxes out in businesses throughout Hampton Roads to gather toys. We also throw several events to raise toys. 2014 was a big year for the Toy Drive and we put smiles on the faces of a whole lot of local children! Special thanks to all of the local businesses and volunteers who helped us secure our inventory of toys!
