Toys for Tots collection starts Saturday

This Saturday, Nov. 27, is the ninth annual Toys for Tots event at Grant’s Farm. 

This year’s event, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. features the Budweiser Clydesdales, bratwurst, beer and members of the U.S. Marines, Affton Fire Department and St. Louis County Police.

Anyone who brings a new, unwrapped toy or a minimum $10 donation will be entered in a drawing for prizes from Grant’s Farm. Prizes include: Grant’s Farm private tours, Budweiser Clydesdale horseshoe, Warm Springs Ranch Tour and more. The Busch Family ownership group, which now operates Grant’s Farm, plans to donate all profits from the food and merchandise sales to Toys for Tots.

Donors also receive a coupon for a free order of pretzel bites on-site at The St. Louis Brewery Biergarten. Guests at the drive-thru Grant’s Farm Holiday Lights at night can also donate toys; those donating will receive a free gift while supplies last. Toys will be collected through Dec. 13.
