HO! HO! HO! Happy Holidays!
You're invited to GIGIL's Santa Soiree! Join us for a play date with Santa himself! Santa will be available between 10am - 12pm for meet n' greet/ photos and he'll be doing a holiday Story Time for all the kiddos!

In the spirit of Holiday Giving, GIGIL is partnering with Ronald McDonald House of Long Beach. We'll be collecting donations and delivering them directly to Ronald McDonald House. The Long Beach RMH has helped over 500 families, that's over 1,600 people (the GIGIL family included), during times of need in 2019. This outstanding organization is providing a reason for families to celebrate this holiday season by offering gifts to children of these families. Additionally, Long Beach Ronald McDonald House is always in need of everyday items to keep the house and community kitchen ready for all of the families. GIGIL will be accepting new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages as well as items off the RMH wish list (see below). Each child that attends GIGIL's Santa Soiree and brings an item to donate to Long Beach Ronald McDonald House, will receive a free open play voucher to return in 2020.

Pictures with Santa are included with your ticket reservation and sponsored by Cielo Roth Photography. The day will be filled with open play, holiday inspired crafts, activities and treats!
