    We regret to inform you that Toy Boat, Spirit Run’s prize sponsor for youth winners aged 8 and under, closed its doors for business this past Sunday.  If you haven’t already retrieved your child’s Toy Boat gift card prize from Toy Boat, please do not go to Toy Boat’s Corona del Mar location because it is now closed.
    We are working with Toy Boat to find another sponsor to cover the value of the unclaimed gift cards that Toy Boat had donated as Spirit Run youth prizes.  We will email you with further details about obtaining and using the Toy Boat gift cards as soon as we receive them, hopefully within the next week to ten days.
    Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We are saddened by the closing of Toy Boat, a loyal Spirit Run supporter for many years and a great small business in Newport Beach.  For more information about the closing, visit www.coronadelmartoday.com.
