Eight hundred families are invited from lists provided by various assistance organizations throughout San Diego County with the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s La Colonia Branch sending 10 families.
The 3,000 children and parents are entertained by live animals, San Diego Police, Fire, and Sheriff officers with equipment, Santa Claus, The Grinch, carnival rides, craft tables and unlimited hot dogs and soft drinks plus much more. Each family departs the event with four bags of groceries including a whole frozen turkey. A $75.00 gift card is also included.
