Bill Handel, a talk show host on KFI radio, will host a cash mob to help save the Toy Boat Toy Boat Toy Boat shop from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, according to his website.
“Handel will be there LIVE between 11-1pm and we want you to show up to help us support this struggling local business, a local landmark, that has been in the community for almost 50 years!” his website states. “They are in danger of closing so come by and purchase a toy to help keep the store open. Even if you don’t have a child, buy a toy and donate to the local Children’s Hospital. Just come on out and support a local business!”
Co-owner Lori Curtin was interviewed on Handel’s program today and later said she was overwhelmed by the community’s support.
