Children, parents and grandchildren all enjoyed the annual Del Mar Foundation Children's Holiday Party on Dec. 13. The Powerhouse Community Center was the site for family portraits by Keane Studios, Face Painting by Pinky's Big Top, a silent auction, crafts, cookies and hot chocolate. The centerpiece of the afternoon was a performance by the Open Window Theater Company and their retelling of the classic tale "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. Audience participation in the production captivated the children and delighted the adults.
For the first time, the Children's Committee held a silent auction at the event to raise funds for the many free activities it plans during the year.
