The Mattel Holiday Festival for Children's Institute 2013

December 14, 2013

On Dec. 14th and 15th, the Mattel Holiday Festival for Children’s Institute made the holidays bright for more than 6,000 children and their parents whose lives have been impacted by family and community violence, abuse or neglect. The weekend gives families an opportunity to spend quality time together during this special time of year.

CII’s Burton E. Green Campus in Torrance and the agency’s headquarters, the Otis Booth Campus near downtown Los Angeles, came alive with the magic of the holidays over the two fun-filled days. Guests enjoyed live entertainment, family photos courtesy of LA Photo Party, visits with Santa Claus and meals donated by El Pollo Loco. At the heart of the event was CII’s Annual Toy Giveaway – a distribution of toys to all children in attendance. Special thanks to Mattel for their generous contribution of financial support, toys and volunteers to this year’s event.

The festivals were hosted for families who receive services from CII and were not open to the public. For many of these families, the festivals were the only celebrations they will experience during the holiday season.
