Teaming Up with the Lakers to Bring Kids Holiday Joy


PUBLISHED December 22, 2018

What a jolly good time! In continuing tradition, the bank recently concluded the last of this year’s Los Angeles Lakers’ “Season of Giving” celebrations with a holiday party just for kids. The air was buzzing with excitement as over 120 students from our nonprofit partners St. Joseph Center, St. Didacus School, and Playworks joined in the festivities.

Held at the UCLA Health Clinic, the official training site for the Lakers, the party featured fun carnival games, crafts such as holiday ornaments and gingerbread cookie decorating, and exciting opportunities for students to meet many Lakers players and the Laker girls.

Whether it was capturing a selfie with their favorite Laker, participating in a singing contest for a chance to win Lakers game tickets, or lounging on a beanbag chair to play video games, the event was a unique experience for each child.

A heartfelt thanks to our partners and volunteers who made the children’s laughter and smiles possible that day. Happy holidays to all!
