The San Diego Center for Children (SDCC) and Il Fornaio Del Mar partnered to host “Light Up A Life” toy drive and cocktail reception  on Dec. 2 at Il Fornaio Del Mar.

Workers with SDCC are collecting letters to Santa from local at-risk children who would never have the opportunity to receive a gift they asked for, or a gift at all.  The fundraiser then goes to purchasing these gifts the children have requested.
Il Fornaio hosted the toy drive/fundraiser as a complement to a donation and 100 percent of the proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the children served by the San Diego Center for Children.
