American Heart Association "Go Red for Women"


Robin Toft and Toft Group support the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign. Cardiovascular diseases continue to be women’s number one health threat. The “Go Red for Women” initiative is designed to increase women’s heart health awareness and serve as a catalyst for change to improve the lives of women globally.

For many years, Robin has donated major auction items to the American Heart Assocation San Diego’s annual “Go Red for Women” luncheon, and she’s doing so again in 2019. (That’s Robin, to the right, bidding in the auction in 2017.) This event raises significant funds for educational and advocacy programs for women. The luncheon this year takes place on Thursday, February 28 at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, with both live and silent auctions, a health expo, breakout sessions, and a fashion show. You can bid on a stay in Robin’s beautiful house in Kauai to help fund these important initiatives!

Robin and Toft Group stand with the American Heart Assocation as they work to provide women with opportunities to prioritize and take charge of their own health, build communities that support and provide access to healthy choices, demand equal access to healthcare for all women and their families, and increase women in STEM in upcoming generations.

MANA de San Diego


Linda Sierra, Toft Group’s Vice President of Customer Experience, recently joined the Board of Directors for MANA de San Diego, a national Latina organization whose mission is to empower Latinas through education, leadership development, advocacy and community service.

MANA short for “Hermana”, the Spanish word for sister, is a dynamic sisterhood of Latinas bound together by common history, culture, language and goals. MANA National came into existence in 1974, as the Mexican-American Women’s National Association, with the mission of giving a voice to Mexican-American women at the national, state and local level. As MANA National grew, the organization evolved into a strong and diverse group of Latinas, from the political, social and professional arenas. In 1994, in recognition of its diverse membership, the non-profit organization voted to change its name to MANA, a National Latina Organization.

Toft Group is proud to support Linda Sierra as she supports her community!

Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer


Team Toft will once again be participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk to help end breast cancer.  We have participated every year since the company’s founding- this is our ninth year! Participants raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, educating tens of thousands of people about breast health and raising funds for breast cancer research and community outreach programs with every step. Team Toft has raised over $50,000 to date.

Unfortunately, many people – both men AND women- still die of breast cancer, which is WHY we walk.  Awareness and screening for early detection has changed the course of the disease for many, and this walk does so much to support that work.
