“Christmas In The Kitchen”
with Mitzi MacDonald
& Keltic Reign
The grand total donated from Christmas in the Kitchen 2017 to Annie Malone Children and Family Services,
right here in St. Louis! Thank you everyone!
"Christmas in The Kitchen" is a memorable live holiday music experience that raises money and toy donations for local children's charities. This year’s recipients are Annie Malone Children and Family Services, AND Join Hands ESL.
Mitzi MacDonald and Keltic Reign perform in a uniquely set Christmas Kitchen, including Irish and Scottish dancing and singing, with many special guests including Anita Rosamond, Ken Martin, Bridgette Kossor and Tim Mead, and our wonderful piping Santa… Dan Jackson! As always, you are invited on-stage, throughout the performance, to have a cup of hot tea (compliments of Traveling Tea) and homemade cookies at Mitzi's kitchen table! We have gluten free cookies now too! Mitzi's children are a part of the band, and many family members are helping out, so this is a true family experience that is guaranteed to get you in the Christmas spirit!! Mitzi comes from Nova Scotia, Canada, where "kitchen parties" are the norm... and you are invited to this one!
Please Bring an unwrapped toy or teen gift, and get a child's admission free.
Come early! Doors open at 6pm with a Silent Auction that is lots of fun! A huge variety of things, including gift certificates, beautiful baskets from local stores, many pieces of artwork, and even Mitzi's shortbread cookies are in the auction! The bar is open, and the wonderfully talented Ken Martin will be serenading you! The auction continues on through the half time intermission.
Our motto is..."Come with full hands, and leave with a full heart"

We collect canned goods and non-perishable food items.
We collect new or gently used winter coats – children and adult sizes.
We take credit cards and checks for admission and the silent auction. ( A little cash on hand is always good to have too, when the magic stocking gets passed around to you!)
If you are making a donation, you can write your check to either organization and you will receive a receipt letter for tax, by regular mail. (Both organizations are 501c3 and your donations to them are tax deductable. )
If you are paying for tickets, please make your check out to Christmas in the Kitchen. Donation checks can be made out to Christmas in the Kitchen as well, and the money will go to the charities, but you would not receive a tax letter. (checks have to be made out directly to the organizations, to receive that)
All money collected this year will be split evenly between the two charities.

A silent auction where 100% of the money goes to Annie Malones and Join Hands.
All proceeds from the admission price, and 100% of the money collected at the show goes directly to Annie Malone's, as well as all the toys, coats, food, etc. (Last year we donated over $14,000 to Annie Malones)
