Englewood's 14th annual Christmas toy giveaway attracted a crowd of boys and girls and their families Saturday, in addition to many top government leaders.The officials included Gov. Pat Quinn and Mayor Daley, who has attended all 14 of the giveaways.

Many bicycles were awarded. Some happy kids received sneakers, and others were given electronics or a variety of toys.

Thanks to generous sponsors, this giveaway was bigger than last year's, despite the nation's troubled economy.
