Last year, Mayor Katrina Foley, City Council Member John Stephens and members of the police and fire departments delivered 100 donated new coats to children at the Westside Boys & Girls Club. In addition to the new coats, there were about 50 gently used coats and sweatshirts were donated as well as $1,884 raised for the Fire Association charity drive and approximately 40 toys for the OCBA Spark of Love Toy Drive.
Foley's holiday soiree, now in its ninth year, is scheduled for December 14th at the Holiday on West 19th Street. The Holiday's exterior reveals a beautifully designed 1900s French plantation house and is considered the Costa Mesa Home of Live Music & Entertainment. The event is a campaign fundraiser for Foley and includes a silent auction benefiting the Costa Mesa Firefighters Association's charity fund.
The coats, art supplies and toys collected this year will be donated to community organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast, Harbor Boys & Girls Club and several local family shelters. Plus, all toys donated at the Miguel's Jr. (https://www.facebook.com/
