Sharing the Spirit Holiday Party

Support children in need this holiday season

The holidays can be a very difficult time for those without permanent housing – especially for the 2.5 million children in the U.S. that are homeless. In partnership with The Happiness Project and the Los Angeles Mission, Festival of Children Foundation will present Sharing the Spirit Holiday Party to give many of these children in Los Angeles and Orange County a dream holiday experience.

The Carousel of Possible Dreams

The Carousel of Possible Dreams CHOC Follies XXII

On January 10th, civic, business and philanthropic leaders — cast mates of the 2019 CHOC Follies — will climb on board South Coast Plaza’s Carousel and go around 50 times to help reach their fundraising goal. That’s when the fun begins. Using nothing more than their cell phones, each rider is tasked with a $2,500 or higher fundraising goal before they complete their laps.

Festival of Children has been an invaluable opportunity for us. We couldn't possibly afford to do the type of outreach that the Festival provides on our own. One of the most amazing stories from our participation in the Festival was meeting a doctor from Turkey who works with blind children there. Through this contact, a new support group was created and we have a new sister school in Turkey.
