Wesson’s Winter Wonderland Thrills 850 Kids


City Council President Herb Wesson’s annual Winter Wonderland was again a great hit this year for over 1,500 area residents including 850 at-risk kids.


The event, which was hosted at the Council President’s District Office, provided toys for every boy and girl who attended, and featured a snow slide with real snow, lunch and special visit from Santa Claus.


“The holidays are about kids, and it’s always gratifying to do something special for at-risk kids at this time of year,” said Wesson.  “We want to keep these kids and their future in mind as we look to confronting the challenges our entire city faces in the coming New Year.”


Wesson’s community partners this year included Community Build, Inc., the 101 Enterprises Foundation, the United Neighborhoods Neighborhood Council, the Pico Neighborhood Council, the SORO Neighborhood Council, Baldwin Hills Elementary School, Clean & Green, and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps.  All provided resources that helped make the event a success.


Also key to the success of the event were the many Wesson volunteers, who donated their time and energy to making the holidays special for families in our community who are in need.


“I’m blessed to have such dedicated and generous partners in the community who always step-up to help others,” said Wesson.  “That’s what the holidays are about.”
