The Little St. Nick Foundation was started in Lynbrook, NY by a 5-year old boy, Ray Mohler Jr., that had a rare hip disease. After having to be in the hospital for 8 hours, he felt bad for the kids that were still in the hospital when he left. That year Ray Jr. decided to donate half of his Christmas gifts to kids in the hospital. It grew and grew every year until it turned into the Little St. Nick Foundation. The Little St. Nick Foundation now has an emergency room gift bag program where they provide ER gift bags to hospitals year around, an annual toy drive, and much more! Agha Haider started the St. Louis chapter of the Little St. Nick Foundation in the summer of 2016 after a nerve wrecking hospital visit after breaking his leg. The St. Louis chapter now provides emergency room gift bags, toys, and books to local area hospitals including Mercy Children's Hospital, Missouri Baptist, Shriner's Hospital, St. Louis Children's Hospital, and St. Anthony's Medical Center.

20% of the total beverage and food proceeds will go to the Little St. Nick Foundation. The Little St. Nick Foundation will then use the money to buy toys for a party the Little St. Nick Foundation is hosting in March at Shriner's Childrens Hospital. If you are interested in attending the fundraiser at CPK or have any questions please email us at aghalittlestnick@gmail.com or call us at (636) 891-4531.
