On December 4th I wrote (in this post regarding the Big BK Toy Drive):
…What if I cannot attend tomorrow’s event?
You ask? NO PROBLEM! There are a number of toy drop-off locations where you can make a donation (which are being accepted through December 16th!). Follows are a few:
- Any East River Ferry
- Brooklyn General Barber: 144 Bedford Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11211
- St. Nick’s Alliance: 11 Catherine Street Brooklyn, New York 11211
- The Grand Street Business Improvement District (whose head honcha, Artineh Havan, has not only been wonderful in terms of getting the word out, but has something very special lined up this holiday season— more about that in another post!): 246 Graham Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11206…
Now without further ado here it is!

Dear Miss Heather,
As previously mentioned, we are so excited about our holiday event this year…For the first time, we have asked local art students to design window displays for eight of our businesses. We are inviting the community out on Thursday, December 13th from 6 to 8:30 pm for their debut: to walk around, enjoy refreshments, and vote for their favorite window.
For voting for the best window, everyone will be entered in a raffle to win great prizes. The best window will also win a prize. We will also have Santa and Carolers as well as a Holiday Scavenger Hunt.
I have attached our poster, postcard (both back and front) and e-flyer. Kindly mention it if you have the space.
Gladly! This sounds like some serious fun folks— so mark your calendars and check it out!
