Posted by Holly Reville — December 21, 2015
SAN DIEGO, CA - The Rancho Bernardo Community Council hosted the first annual FREE Hot Cocoa holiday event this past Sunday, December 6, 1-3 pm at Windermere Homes and Estates Rancho Bernardo office. Thanks to the efforts of Rancho Bernardo Community Council and our agent Patti Hall who serves as the RB Community Council and co-chair of the PR Committee for bringing holiday cheer to some children who need it. Attendees enjoyed a free, fun-filled family time sipping hot cocoa, eating holiday cookies and coloring holiday artwork. Those in attendance also had an opportunity to take a free photo with Santa (Supervisor Dave Roberts stepped in as the 'real' Santa is very busy this time of year) or by Chanukah decorations. The also had an opportunity to have a photo taken of them as either a dreidel or an elf.
The Rancho Bernardo Community Council asked attendees to bring one new unwrapped toy, game or book which will be donated to the Polinsky Children's Center for the holidays. The Polinsky Children's Center is San Diego County’s emergency shelter for children who cannot remain at home as a result of abuse or neglect. Through the generosity of the attendees, three large 36 gallon bags of toys were collected for this great cause. Windermere Homes and Estates is happy to help our agents give back and serve our communities where we live, work and play.
