There’s nothing like receiving gifts to stuff your holiday stocking. It seems that Nouveau Bar and Grill owner Ebony Austin has found the best gift of all, giving back. The business maven recently did her fourth annual toy drive at Cascade Skating Rink in Atlanta, GA. This wasn’t just any toy drive, this toy drive catered to families in need, teachers in Fulton county, and more. SHEEN Magazine was on site to partake in some of the free smiles being passed out

While snapping shots we were able to catch up with Ebony and she stated that she’s enjoyed doing this and helping families. In addition to toys she’s been able to give out scholarships and even homes to three single mothers. You read that part right, “HOMES”. That no doubt has to be an amazing feeling. The business maven all let us know that she’s grateful to be able to fully fund this toy drive from her own pockets and have a huge turn out.

Among the supporters there was radio host Mz. Shyneka from Yung Joc’s Morning Takeover, media personality Fly Guy DC, Mayor Andre Dickens, attorney Kendra Robinson, and so many more. Seeing all these people give back their time to celebrate the holidays is really the gift that will keep on giving. In addition to a star studded lineup passing out toys; there was also a local highschool band playing a lot of tunes outside the legendary skating rink greeting recipients as they waited in line for their chance to collect gifts.

We are truly thankful for Ebony Austin and her brand Nouveau Bar & Grill for all that they do in the community. There are several ways for our readers to get involved. Make sure to go to Nouveau Bar & Grill and show your patron support and let’s keep making these events bigger and better every year.
