Media Advisory - Holiday season celebration

TORONTO, Dec. 18 /CNW/ - The holiday season is a joyful time for most children but for others it can be quite difficult. That's why the Children's Aid Foundation, in partnership with PepsiCo Canada, is so committed to the Holiday Season Celebration, which is a jam-packed day of excitement and festivities for 1,000 children in care and their families. For many of these children this is the only holiday celebration they get to take part in.

In celebration of the 30th annual Holiday Season Celebration, special guests, Jarvis Church, Juno award-winning singer and producer, Miles Faber, So You Think You Can Dance Canada season one participant, and Chris Van Zeyl, player for the Argonauts, will be on-hand to sign autographs. Other highlights for our children include a dance party, movie screening, arts and crafts, loads of tasty food and goodie bags for each child and each family.
