Here is a message from BGCV’s Andrea Castellanos. On Friday, December 15th the Boys & Girls Clubs of Venice hosted their annual Holiday Party for Club members. Club members got to write letters to the North Pole, create antlers, make gingerbread cookies, take a picture with Santa, and sing to karaoke festive hits. The Coke sponsored party was an incredibly fun time for Club Members, parents, and the volunteers. With toy donations from Del Rey Yacht Club, Century City Women in Business Council, Belair Treatment Center, Sharky’s, Firestone Walker, Team One and friendly Club supporters we were able to wrap and give toys away to the parents of Club members. This year we distributed over 200 toys and 100 gift cards to over 150 households. Parents and children left with smiles on their faces and their stomachs full of tasty treats. Thank you to everyone that helped, sponsored, and made the afternoon such a success! Happy Holidays!
