2013-14 Lakers Holiday Party

This holiday season the Lakers and East West Bank continued their tradition of providing one-of-a-kind holiday experiences during their annual “Season of Giving” community initiative. On Thursday December 19th the annual Holiday Party for Kids took place at the Lakers practice facility where 100 children were invited to a winter wonderland.

Handing out presents

The day began with the Laker Girls welcoming everyone to the party and providing them with Holiday t-shirt for the event. They then made their way to the skate rental shop to get their ice skates on for skating with the Laker Girls.

After ice-skating the kids headed in to the party area where there was food, games and gifts all set up for them. A special Santa Clause, also known as Pau Gasol, was there to take a photo with each of the children and talk to them about their holiday plans.

At the conclusion of the event the players handed out a Lakers gift bag consisting of a foam finger, Lakers yearbook, Lakers pendant, mini basketball hoop, and an East West Bank blanket.

The Lakers were happy to give and the kids were ecstatic to receive not only a few fun souvenirs but more importantly memories that will last a lifetime.
