A longstanding Vanderbilt tradition, Turkey Toss is a way to thank university and medical center employees for their service by offering them their choice of a turkey, a vegetarian tofurkey, or a Vanderbilt oven mitt.
This year’s event also was highlighted by a visit from Santa, carolers in Victorian costume, festive holiday decorations, and all the popcorn and candy employees could eat.
