Kathy Ireland Children's Christmas Celebration

Presented by Moretz & the YardHouse

 

The Holiday Children's Gala began in 1986 at White Memorial Hospital in East Los Angeles with over 400 disadvantaged inter-city children. A collaborative group of athletes, sportscasters, community and business leaders and local college students banned together to address what could be done for forgotten impoverished children. The tradition has endured through the years and from 1987 to 1998 the Century Plaza Hotel and Tower hosted the Holiday Children's Gala. Hollywood's brightest stars have supported this event (Kobe Bryant, Michael Landon, Howie Long, Bruce Jenner, Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Firestone, Holly Robinson-Peete, Robin Givens, Rob Lowe, Alan Thicke, Charlie Sheen, cast from Family Ties, cast from Head of the Class, Jay Thomas, Ken Norton Jr. and hundreds more). Collaboratively, they have shared with thousands of kids over the years lasting memories of holiday activities we often take for granted - from decorating cookies to singing Holiday songs to having "Twas the Night Before Christmas" read to sitting on Santa Claus' and receiving a great gift.
