Everett and Jones Barbeque hosted its annual Holiday Toy Giveaway at its Berkeley restaurant on Saturday, Dec. 22, handing out toys to children in need for Christmas. Owner Mary Everett (center photo wearing Santa hat) started the toy giveaway 20 years ago, using toys donated by her loyal customers and celeb athletes New York Yankees CC Sabathia, San Francisco 49ers Vernon Davis, and Milwaukee Bucks Drew Gooden. Children took photos with Santa, who made a special appearance at the event. “Kids should be happy,” said Everett. Photos by Laura M. Wong.
