Tonight: BIG Toy Drive Snow Date

We interrupt this holiday vacation to bring you news of a very special event.

Bay Improvement Group’s 19th Annual Holiday Caroling and Toy Drive is holding it’s rain/snow date today! The group originally planned to have the event December 19, but snow pushed it back to post-holiday times. As a result, they’ve dropped the “caroling” from the title and added “celebrity concert.” But most importantly, they need your donations.

From BIG:

The snow storm really hurt this special annual event and we really need your help here.
PLEASE help promote, publish, PSA’s, etc. to get the word out for the few hundred needy children mostly under 10 years old that are counting on us to come through this year.
We will be there for a Special New Year’s snow date Toy Drive Celebrity Concert!
Please tell people we need toys this year for the needy, battered woman’s shelter and terminally ill children at our southern end of Brooklyn, in the Sheepshead Bay area.
St Mark, RC School Auditorium, Jerome Av & East 19th St,
Parking enter on Ave Z…
JUST Bring a NEW UNWRAPPED TOY and get a GREAT FREE Celebrity Holiday Concert and Toy Drive!

BIG adds that 200 kids under 10 years old stand to benefit from the event.
