Terranea Resort Celebrates the Season of Giving
We are rocking and rolling this holiday season at Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA. Last week we kicked off our annual holiday tradition on December 1st with a festive evening and tree lighting ceremony called Celebration of the Season.
The event featured live holiday performances from community organizations including Coast Music Conservatory Youth Choir, Freedom 4U Carol Singers, Norris Center for the Performing Arts “Times Square Kids,” Peninsula Montessori School Class 116, and Coast Music Conservatory Storey Time Vocal Quartet. The highly anticipated countdown of the tree lighting was lead by special guests Stephanie LaFranchi and Melissa Onak from the Gathering Place. In addition, a Holiday Village was built that included activities for kids such as cookie decorating, elves and build-a-bear. Children also brought letters to mail to Santa via the resort’s “Santa’s Mailbox” at Pointe Discovery (available through Dec. 24).
One of the evening highlights was a special donation to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Terranea Resort team members and guests collected more than 100 gifts for Toys for Tots leading up to the event. A surprise donation was also made by Mattel, whose U.S. Marketing Team generously contributed several dozen toys during their meeting off-site at the Resort.
We are so grateful for the support of our community and the tireless efforts of community organizations such as The Gathering Place and Toys for Tots who make such a difference in the lives of others.
