LOS ANGELES, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Fostering UNITY will present their 4th annual Winter Wonderland event at the organization’s headquarters in Acton, CA on Saturday, December 10 from 4-8pm. This free event sold out in less than one week!

The evening is pure magic!
Guests will drive through Winter Wonderland at their scheduled time, stopping at exciting stations, each with its own theme or activity. The winning holiday artwork from the art contest will be shared for all to enjoy. An ice skating rink will be set up with skaters scheduled to showcase their talents.

Before leaving, each child will receive a thoughtful age-appropriate gift, beautifully wrapped by a team of volunteers as well as the childrens’ book “Once Upon a Child”.
