Community Holiday Festival & Donation Drive to Benefit Children in Need
San Diego CA— On Sunday, December 8, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the San Diego Center for Children will hold its annual Wacky Wonderland, a community holiday festival and donation drive. The event will take place at the Center’s main campus in Linda Vista to collect much needed holiday gifts and donations for children, teens and families being served through its program services.
Attendees will enjoy jumpers and carnival games, a holiday sweater contest, pictures with Santa and Wacky Willy, holiday crafts and festive music. Returning emcee for this year’s Wacky Wonderland will be Tati from STAR 94.1. Vespa Motorsport will also be a part of the festivities by leading its 12th Annual Scooter Toy Run featuring more than 200 holiday decorated scooters parading through the Center’s front gates.
Admission to this community event is free with a new, unwrapped toy. All proceeds from the day will benefit the Center, our region’s oldest children’s nonprofit, which helps children and families struggling with mental, emotional and behavioral health challenges. The Center provides therapeutic, educational, foster care and transition age services to over 1,000 youth every day across 8 program sites in the county.
