WHERE THE MONEY GOES

2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, especially for kids who may not fully understand what’s going on in the world today.
Your contribution changed all that. 100% of the proceeds raised through this event offered food, shelter, mentoring, toys, arts,
education, healthcare and more to help underserved kids have a great Christmas.

Proceeds went to the following charity organizations for their programs and services for kids:

The Get Together Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to action since 2004, delivering aid, care, comfort, and more to our community’s most vulnerable citizens. Through the power of music, we help those in need. 

Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles was the first non-profit pediatric hospital in SoCal, established in 1901. They provide pediatric healthcare with medical experts offering more than 350 pediatric specialty programs and services. 

100 Black Men has been furthering the education and empowerment of African-American youth, since 1963, to help them focus and set goals for their future through their upstanding Mentoring and Education programs.

Valley Cultural Foundation is the leading non-profit arts organization in the San Fernando Valley, founded in 1975; VCF’s mission embraces diversity of talent, community, business, and education by providing free programs and events in the arts to all kids regardless of economic or social means.

Spark of Love Toy Drive with ABC7 & SoCAL Firefighters have celebrated 27 years successfully collecting more than 10 million new, unwrapped toys & sports equipment for underserved children and teens in Los Angeles and adjacent counties.

Here is how we put some of the donation money into action in time for Christmas.
