This is our Fourth Annual Gifts of Joy Concert and Gift-Raiser.
Each year we offer a concert where people gather as a community and donate wrapped Christmas gifts for residents of nursing homes who might not receive any presents. Last year we collected over 250 gifts, providing enough for a whole senior facility and part of another facility not far away. This year we hope to provide enough gifts for that whole facility again, plus a bunch of presents for different residents in several facilities throughout St. Louis.
The Muddled Pig in Maplewood will be hosting our event; they have a delicious and varied menu with vegan/vegetarian options, a full bar with locally brewed beer and drink specials throughout the night, plus super attentive staff.
Doors open at 6:00pm. Music starts at 7:00pm. (to reserve a table, you need at least 4 people, so there are no empty seats)
Our musicians are stellar every year and our line up on 11/11 includes:
Tim Mead, Dave Black, Steve Davis and Bridgette Kossor with guest appearances by Mitzi McDonald and Rocky Tucker. Our special guest is Jeanne Trevor, who will grace us with a few of her favorite tunes.
