Little Black Book's signature philanthropic gala, BrrrBASH features dinner, open bar, live music, dancing, silent auctions, photo booth and more!
Founded by Little Black Book: Women in Business in 2013, BrrrBASH has grown into a large scale collaborative toy collection campaign to benefit Toys for Tots. Little Black Book is a community of female professionals committed to professional and personal development in a collaborative, non-competitive environment. We strive to grow our network and community through service and charity.
The 2021 LBB BrrrBASH to Benefit Toys for Tots will be kicking off its ninth annual toy drive on November 1st when collection boxes are put into the market and concludes December 11th with a collection celebration from 6-11 pm at Foundry Art Centre in historic St. Charles. Little Black Book partners with over 100 local businesses over four counties, the cities of Wentzville, Lake St Louis, O'Fallon and St Peters, numerous Fire Protection Districts in St Charles and St Louis Counties to actively collect toys for the charity.
Since 2013, Little Black Book has donated over 29,500 toys to the Foundation. All of the toys donated will be distributed in the Greater St Louis area.
For the past four years, the LBB BrrrBASH to Benefit Toys for Tots has accounted for 20% of the total number of toys distributed by the US Marines to happy children at Christmas. We are proud to know that LBB is the largest donor in the greater St Louis region, and St Louis is the third largest collection in the United States.
In addition to the Greater St Louis campaign, Little Black Book also manages BrrrBASH toy collection campaigns in Lincoln County, Missouri and Madison County, Illinois. All toys collected in those counties will directly serve the need of the local children.
The public is invited to drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any of the participating locations between November 1 - December 9. Help LBB bring Christmas to children in need!
