Brooklyn charities to be helped by holiday spirit

November 27, 2013 by  

‘Miracles in Brooklyn’, a holiday soiree and fundraiser is taking place in just over a week, at which a portion of proceeds from raffles and a 50/50 draw will go to help women and children affected by, or living with, AIDS/HIV in the city.

The party, which is a presentation of the Women’s Networking Emporium (WNE), will feature networking opportunities, musical entertainment, a photographer, free food samples, and cupcakes. Vendors will also be on hand to sell a variety of handmade and unique items, while guests can buy raffle tickets or participate in the draw. The first 50 children through the door will receive a holiday gift bag, and will no doubt be pleased to know that Miss Claus will be meeting with guests and possibly posing for pictures.

Those who attend are also encouraged to make a donation to the chosen charity, bring unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots, or donate a coat to New York Cares.

Participating vendors might decide to work with Brooklyn printing companies to make their booths and tables more attractive to guests. This could be done with a dramatic sign or a colorful banner draped over a table, while promotional items like notepads and presentation folders could be handed out as freebies.

‘Miracles on Broadway’ is being held at the Brooklyn Colony on December 7 from 4:30 pm – 11:00 pm, and is free to attend. For more information about the event, or the Women’s Networking Emporium, visit the organization’s website.
