St. Louis BBQ Society is teaming up with WIL Radio and Shriner’s Hospital to make Christmas a little brighter for ill and needy children.

Last year we delivered purchased toys and donated gifts and this year we plan on doing even more. The folks with

WIL will be doing a live radio broadcast during the donation event, more details to come for dates and time.

We’d love some members to be present and help us with the presentation of toys. We really would like a personal touch and so we earnestly request that you bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Gala for a sick or needy child. We will have toy donation bins at the Gala for all the donated toys.

We feel that ‘Giving to the kids’ would be a great ‘Holiday’ theme for the Gala while making their holidays a little brighter for some great kids!

If you have any questions please contact Julie Glaser at 314-315-5177 or email at CARP1143@att.net

This Thanksgiving the St Louis BBQ Society is proud to help support The Brass Rail Restaurant in O’Fallon, Missouri with it’s efforts to feed 10,000 – 12,000 meals this Thanksgiving.

Scott Ellinger the owner, is passionate for this cause and each year has increased the amount of meals served by

thousands. He has been providing these free meals for 5 years. Anyone in need can call in to his restaurant and request the meals. He offers delivery, carry out and dine in on Thanksgiving day. He starts preparing the meals the Sunday before and prepares items each day until Thanksgiving day when the meals go out.

The board voted to donate to help support this cause and we have offered our support in any way that we can help. We will have several teams set up on his parking lot cooking and slicing turkeys. By having these smokers available to him, we can help free up his kitchen to prepare the side items.

He is also in need of donations and volunteers. There are jobs that anyone can do that wants to help.

He will need help with food prep Sunday through Wednesday. He will also need cooks and drivers on Thursday (Thanksgiving) as well as packers and cleanup people. Shifts are typically 2 hours, but you can sign up for more.

Please call the Brass Rail soon at (636) 329-1349 and tell them you are with the St Louis BBQ Society and would like to sign up for a shift. Let them know which day and what jobs you may be able to help with and they will sign you up.

If you want to deliver meals, be prepared with a full tank of gas as they serve a 60 mile radius. The have the cars line up, give you a route and then on to the next car. You can do one route or some come back and deliver more.

They are also accepting donations. 100% of the donations will go towards the meals. Please visit https://www.paypal.me/brassrail to make a donation through PayPal or stop by the restaurant at 4601 Highway K, in O’Fallon, MO
