Our Christmas Lives Ceremony this year was held on December 15, 2015 at the Laborer's Local 300 Union, 14800 Devonshire Street Mission Hills, California.  
There were over 300 children and their families at this year's event.  Our Club handed out gifts to each member within a family that had been identified by representatives as needy families.  Gift cards were also handed out.  Gift cards ranging from $25.00 to $50.00 were handed out to many individuals at the events.

Our Club also provided meals such as enchiladas, mini cake/cheese cake and cookies and drinks.  In addition, the IN-N-Out mobile food truck was on site providing hundreds of meals for our guest and their families.  We had Santa come in and families and their children had the opportunity to take pictures with Santa.  We had a famous DJ who performed wonderfully well and the kids were fully entertained.  The event was very successful as members of the community showed their appreciation by thanking our club members several times during the event and many of the families said they were looking forward to another event next year.
Here are some highlights from the event.
