What is it all about?.....Take a look!
A Crystal Starr Christmas is a Concert and Toy drive/Give away for Children in Foster Care. This year we have Partnered with the Hathaway-Sycamore Family and Children Services Organization to bring joy and happiness to even more Children.
Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services, one of the largest, nonprofit, private children’s mental health and welfare agencies in Los Angeles County, provides a comprehensive continuum of services to over 8,000 children and families annually through a network of facilities stretching across the greater Los Angeles area including the San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley, and the Antelope Valley. Services include: a residential treatment center for youth ages six through 18; foster care and adoption services; a nonpublic school; school-based and outpatient mental health services; wraparound and in-home counseling services; a transitional living program for teens; a family resource center; and a grief and loss center for children. The agency is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services, certified by the Department of Mental Health, and accredited through The Joint Commission.
"Our mission is to "Fill" the arena with Children from the Foster care system and throw them a huge Christmas Party! Remember that feeling you had as a child waking up at 3am to the smell of warm cookies on the table and your mom in the hallway whispering "You can open just one"? Thats what we do for these kids. We make them feel like its 3am and they are allowed to open "Just One"."
"We know that it takes a "Village" to raise a child, so here we are, building a foundation for kids to look back on and experience a special concert that was organized just for them."
We welcome this years Orchestra Elevation!
