On Monday, November 23rd, 2009 the Los Angeles Galaxy Foundation and The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation hosted its 7th Annual Foundations’ Feast at The Home Depot Center’s American Express Stadium Club. More than 250 children and families from local organizations and group homes were invited to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner.
Staff from the LA Galaxy, The Home Depot Center, Athletes Performance, ESPN, and members of the 2009 and 2010 Miss LA Galaxy Court volunteered to greet guests, assist with arts and crafts and serve Thanksgiving dinner. 2009 Miss LA Galaxy Court Member Nicole Avalos and 2010 Miss LA Galaxy Court Members Elizabeth Gomez, Jennifer Whang, and Alondra Suarez signed autographs and posed for pictures with the children.
For the seventh consecutive year, Farmer John donated hams for everyone to enjoy. Two Chefs on A Roll and Marie Callender’s Restaurant & Bakery – Gardena provided cupcakes and pumpkin and apple pies for dessert. Levy Restaurant prepared the hams, turkeys and side dishes for the event. Each child was given a goodie bag with items from the LA Galaxy, See’s Candies, Children’s Dental Group, and Buena Vista International.
