Now in its 7th year, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens hosted An Evening of Jazz & Cocktails at Russo’s On The Bay to benefit families in need this Christmas. Catholic Charities helps our neighbors year-round, but the Christmas Season is a special time for helping children and families in need. This event allows us to celebrate the season with extended family while also helping those who are less fortunate. 100% of the proceeds will be used to purchase gift cards to benefit children and families at Christmas at our Toy Drives in Brooklyn and Queens, where families will have the opportunity to “shop” for gifts and toys for their children.
We are collecting new and unwrapped gifts for children infant to age 17. For more information on where to drop off your new toys, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to our wonderful supporters!
