In 2006, MMABSE held its first Holiday Fling for Kids. The purpose was to collect educational toys at Christmas time for area youth. At annual events, individuals make monetary donations or donate gifts. Below is an overview.
Northcott Neighborhood House was the first recipient and received educational toys.
Sojourner Truth House received educational toys.
One family from each Milwaukee Public Schools elementary and middle school received educational toys.
Malaika Early Learning Center received educational toys.
MPS Homeless Education Department received gift certificates valued at over $2500 for families.
The 2016 Holiday Fling for Kids event will be held on Saturday, December 10 at The Big Easy, 2053 North Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, from 6:00 – 11:00 p.m. Free parking to the south of the restaurant or in the back-parking lot is available. Patrons will enjoy appetizers, dancing, and door prizes.
Tickets are $30.00 per person and may be purchased from MMABSE Executive Board members. Proceeds will be used to purchase gift certificates for the MPS Homeless Education Department. MMABSE is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations are 100% tax deductible.
