Children's Christmas Celebration Host to Over 500!

On Saturday, December 8 Broadway Stages and the 94th Precinct Community Council hosted their 8th children's Christmas celebration. We welcomed over 500 guests who enjoyed a day full of fun activities including face painting, balloon animals, a photo booth, and arts and crafts. Delicious kid-inspired sweet and savory snacks were available for our guests to enjoy, and each child was given a goody bag of arts and crafts to continue the fun when they got home. But the best part of the day was a meeting with Santa, complete with a gift from his toy shop at Broadway Stages.  

Together with the 94th Precinct, Broadway Stages is grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with our community.  

Merry Christmas!

Stay Warm This Winter – Coat Giveaway Dec. 18

Broadway Stages, in cooperation with the 79th Precinct, is hosting a coat giveaway on Tuesday, December 18 beginning at 2:00 p.m. Coats will be distributed to children and adults in need, without charge, discrimination, or obligation.

Each fall, just before we feel the first nip in the New York air, Broadway Stages begins to collect coats for children and adults in need. Collection boxes are placed at our facilities across New York City where many of our local vendors, businesses, contractors, employees, and neighbors graciously donate coats. Broadway Stages also purchases several dozen coats each year to kick off the spirit of giving and augment the coat drive. This year the 79th Precinct has graciously opened their doors as the distribution location. We thank them for their cooperation, their time and effort, and support of our shared and beloved community.

Stay warm this holiday season and throughout the winter. If you or someone you know needs a coat to get through the winter, please stop by the 79th Precinct at 263 Tompkins Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11216 on December 18. For more information about the distribution, or to make a donation, please contact monica@broadway-stages.com.

Broadway Stages Sponsors Glendale and Brooklyn 94th Precinct National Night Out

This past Tuesday, Broadway Stages sponsored the National Night Out to honor the hardworking and brave men and women of the 94th Precinct protecting Greenpoint every day. The annual community event promotes police and resident camaraderie and helps create safer neighborhoods by bringing together local residents with those who pledge to serve them. The event honoring our local officers was a huge success!

Broadway Stages invited all our neighbors in Greenpoint to enjoy delicious grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausages topped with fresh veggies on us! Serving hundreds of families and children that night, Broadway Stages came prepared with dozens of pounds of food to accommodate our hungry guests.

Among the most popular attraction at the event was the water jet game, which involves shooting a water pistol at a target three feet away to elevate your pole to the top. The game attracted children and adults, with winners taking home toys including SpongeBob and emoji plushies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of the night, we held a showing of all the honorable servicemen and women who strive to keep our communities and families safe. As police officers walked to the stage, they were greeted with rounds of applause by community members thankful for their service. Receiving cheers from the crowd, the 94th Precinct sure felt right at home at the National Night Out.

We hope that the 94th Precinct and our fellow Brooklynites enjoyed the event and look forward to continuing to serve our community, as the 94th Precinct does.
