Last night I hosted a party for the kids at Toussaint Academy which is a center for homeless teens through the Father Joe's organization.
I am so thankful for all my good friends who really pitched in and offered their services for the night. Like the Wow Girls from Wow Your Beauty Concierge who did hair and make-up for all the teens.
Also thank you to the Shopaholics Boutique in Little Italy, Prospect Bar and Lounge in La Jolla, and everyone else who provided tons of stuff for the gift bags for the kids.
There was also an arts and crafts area where the kids could make their own ornaments. Thanks to Dora Sainz for providing all the stuff for the arts and crafts area.
The kids had a blast in the photo booth thanks to JT Photo booth! It was the hit of the night!
Oh we had fun in the photo booth also!
Singer Frankie J performed for the kids!
He sang some of his own songs along with some classic Christmas songs like Feliz Navidad. The kids loved him and sang along to all the songs! Thanks for coming out Frankie!
This is the "store" at Toussaint Academy where kids can earn tokens to buy things they need. Any donated clothing, shoes, and other items are placed in this "store" teaching the kids to earn what they get.
Thanks to all the volunteers who helped throughout the night. And thanks to Farmers Insurance office of Julie Garcia for donating the tree.
An anonymous donor donated 5 laptop computers to their computer lab! Awesome!
We put together a video for the kids filled with various celebrities like Baby Bash, Deuce from the Disney Show Shake it Up, UFC Fighters, Skylar Grey, and Rihanna encouraging the kids to stay on the right path. Rihanna is even sending them autographed CD's of her latest album Unapologetic! Awesome!
Thanks to Hector from Casanova Fish Tacos for providing the food for the night!! And to Hector Jr for helping serve the food. You guys are awesome!
And special thanks to Cesar and Brannon from Prospect Bar and Lounge in La Jolla for providing food and some goodies for the gift bags. THANK YOU!
The kids were soooo happy when they got their gift bags! Thanks to all those who kindly donated items for the bags.
Of course Channel 933 was in the house!
Thanks to the National Workers Comp Association who provided the drinks, water, and pan dulce for the night!
All in all it was a great night! I'm glad we were able to provide the kids with a fun holiday party, that they may not have otherwise had. SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED PUT ON THIS AMAZING NIGHT. Without you guys none of this would be possible, so I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart. And a special thank you to the Toussaint Academy, Father Joe's organization, and the kids for allowing us to come into your home and hang out with you guys. We had such a great time.
