Bxbiz Holiday Network and Toy Drive

The Bronx Entrepreneurs and Business Network (BEBN) Toy Drive will go to benefit kids and teens living in Bronx shelters. Our chosen charity is Bronx Works who will distribute the toys. Our toy drive runs until December 12, the night of the BEBN Holiday Network and Toy Drive event at El Habanero Restaurant, the Bronx.

We recommend focusing on toys appropriate for two age groups:
* Infants and small children (0 months - 6 years)
* Pre-teens and adolescents (14-18 years old)

It is generally the case that people buy toys for school aged children (6-12 years) and the teens get left out. If we get too many gifts geared at teens, these can generally still be given to school aged children. A fun gift for a teenager is usually also fun to a 10-year-old, but this is not true of a gift geared for a 10-year-old being given to a 15-year-old.

Collections for unwrapped new toys are being raised offline, thanks to our toy drop off sponsors.

The Raiders Win Bronx Borough Prez Cup

Featured photo

The Little League Raiders are the champions of the second annual Borough President’s Cup. The Little League Raiders defeated the Bronx Bombers Little League, winning the title for the second straight year at a Sept. 25th game at Yankee Stadium. The final score was 6-1.
To compete for the tournament, both teams had to meet three requirements: each player had to accomplish a B average in school, have good attendance in school, and be committed to community service. To win, the teams had to play ball of course.
Here are the Raiders poising proudly with the Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
