The Third Annual
Jingle Bell Jamboree, a family holiday concert, sing-a-long and
toy drive, will take place Dec. 14 at 4 pm at the Old First Reformed
Church (729 Carroll St. at Seventh Avenue) in Park Slope.
Performers include The Brooklyn Community Chorus, Brooklyn Technical
High School Chorus, Spoke the Hub Dance, the Old First Men’s
Group and the PS 321 Elementary School Chorus with a big finale
sing-a-long, led by Jingle Bell Jam founder and producer Ethan
Schlesser (pictured with Borough President Marty Markowitz in
2001), who began the jam "as a way to bring healing after
the 9-11 tragedy."
Unwrapped toys will be collected by the Park Slope Civic Council
as part of their ongoing holiday toy drive.
Suggested donation is $5, with proceeds going to non-profit arts
organizations that provide services to the community, according
to Schlesser. For more information, call (917) 514-4591.
