Rod Luck’s annual Christmas Party for Military Kids, an amazing experience aimed at making Christmas a joyous time for kids with parents deployed in war zones, sees its 10th year.
San Diego, Ca (PRWEB) December 31, 2011
Rod Luck’s 10th annual Christmas Party for Military Kids was held on December 18th and highlighted the coming together of an amazing group of San Diego organizations to benefit kids. The event is organized and hosted by San Diego’s Rod Luck, former newsman for KUSI-TV, and is designed to ensure that kids with parents deployed in war zones have the Christmas they deserve.
The party was a wonderful experience for the kids and families in attendance. It featured a breakfast prepared by the Hard Rock Café, and the local Marines and sailors also pitched in to help. Santa was in attendance to take pictures with the kids and the atmosphere was truly joyous for all in attendance.
Several different local organizations came together to make this year’s party possible. Hosted at the Hard Rock Café, the party was for 50 kids, all of whom were recommended by the Armed Services YMCA.
Rod Luck is the organizer and founder of the event. In years past, he was also the sole funder. This year, Rod had help from The Nice Guys, a San Diego organization dedicated to helping individuals and families in the community. The Nice Guys, SDG&E, Alpha project, and several other sponsors came together and were able to donate a $55 gift card per child.
