Christmas in the Kitchen 2020

Mitzi MacDonald and Keltic Reign are excited to announce that the 16th annual Christmas in the Kitchen will be a virtual concert fundraiser and toy drive for Annie Malone Children and Family Services and Join Hands ESL. Please join our live stream on Facebook on Sunday, December 20th from 6:00-8:00 pm, with Celtic Christmas music, virtual guests popping in, and tea and cookies around the kitchen table! The live stream can be accessed on Mitzi's personal page  or on the Mitzi Macdonald and Keltic Reign band page.

Since our first concert in 2004, Christmas in the Kitchen has raised $85,000 for local St. Louis Charities. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the holiday season will look different for many families this year. Even though we can't hold our fundraiser in person, we are hopeful that we can continue to support two amazing organizations who provide assistance to families across the city. All donations from this GoFundMe and Toy Drive will be split evenly between Join Hands ESL and Annie Malone Children and Family Services.

"I am so so grateful for the generosity of donors to Christmas in the Kitchen. 2020 has been a hard year for so many, especially so for those who already struggle in poverty. With the support of kind people like those who donate to Christmas in the Kitchen, we have been able to continue to be there for our beautiful children and families, walking with them through these hard times, providing a safety net, friendship, and opportunity. 
From the bottom of my heart thank you!" - Sheila Burton, Executive Director of Join Hands ESL

"Each year, Annie Malone Children and Family Services helps over 500 children and families in the St. Louis area through our programs in crisis intervention, education, respite, emergency placement and residential treatment. 
At Annie Malone, we care for kids in crisis.  Our compassionate staff become like family – sometimes for only a day and sometimes for much longer. Your gift will help our children overcome trauma and reach their destiny!" - Sarah Lahman, CEO of Annie Malone Children and Family Services
