Broadway Showgirls Launches Toy Drive

On November 20th, in partnership with the San Francisco Fire Fighters Toy Program, Broadway Showgirls helped launch a month-long charitable event running from Thanksgiving through Christmas that gathered toys and money for families in need. Patrons earned entry by donating an unwrapped new toy instead of paying a cover charge. Over 11 clubs throughout San Francisco participated in the program by offering nightly benefit dances at prime business hours as well as providing toy donation receptacles for patrons and employees. The month-long promotion concluded with a check and toy presentation on Tuesday December 21st at San Francisco Fire Station #1, just in time for Christmas!
