Christmas Fiesta at The Shoppes at Palmilla
Each year Liga MAC teams up with The Shoppes at Palmilla to kick-off the “Spirit of Giving” for the Holiday Season during the first week of December. In 2017, the Fiesta will be on Tuesday, December 5th.
Everyone is welcome to attend the Christmas Fiesta held annually! Please plan to attend and bring your friends along! Admission is an unwrapped, non-battery operated toy for a child 1-12 years of age. The toys are given to low-income families assisted by LIGA MAC when Santa visits our Centro de Apoyo at El Zacatal for our Christmas Posada Day.
Enjoy a casual evening at the beautiful Shoppes at Palmilla plaza with a glass of wine or soft drink while listening to Los Angeles – “The Angels” – LIGA MAC’s ACE student choir, along with live music from local performers. The Shoppes generous donations of raffle items show the true spirit of Mano con Mano - "hand in hand" - . It’s a fun evening of holiday cheer and a wonderful way to brighten the holidays for less fortunate children in our community. See you there!
What’s more fun than watching kids open gifts on Christmas Season? Watching them open their gifts at the LIGA MAC Christmas Posada!
The fun starts at the Centro de Apoyo, but the work actually begins after our Christmas Fiesta at The Shoppes at Palmilla. The hundreds of gifts received are sorted and wrapped by volunteer elves at the Centro. Invitations are given to Despensa families in the program with young children. Then, on Christmas Posada Day, Santa arrives at the Centro and dispenses the many gifts. To round out the day, the children and family members enjoy a traditional piñata, the Los Angeles choir, fun games and snack.
