03 Dec L.A. County Supervisor Barger to Host Holiday Party for Youth in Foster Care at Six Flags Magic Mountain
To help ring in the holiday season, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger will host her annual party for youth served by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and their foster families at Six Flags Magic Mountain on Saturday, December 4.
More than 500 invitees will be treated to lunch, photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, crafts, books, and their choice of a new toy. After the party, all will be given free admission to the theme park courtesy of the team at Six Flags.
“Each year, our holiday celebration shows youth living in foster care and their families that we care about making their season a little merrier,” Supervisor Barger said. “Thanks to the collaboration of so many committed and generous community partners, we are able to provide this special day at no cost to families so they can make lasting memories together. It’s truly moving to see the delight in the children’s faces during this time of year, especially since many of them have been through so much.”
Generous donors collectively contributed more than $65,000 to cover the cost of the event. Sponsors include Amazon, Logix, Anthem Blue Cross, Northrop Grumman, AT&T, NBCUniversal, Spectrum and Blue Shield. Toys are donated in partnership with ABC 7’s Spark of Love toy drive, whose presenting sponsor is Subaru. The celebration will begin at 10:00 a.m. and is invite-only.
