On Thursday, October 29th, the Los Angeles Galaxy Foundation and The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation hosted its 3rd annual Treats-n-Suites Halloween Bash at The Home Depot Center. More than 500 children dressed in costume trick-or-treated around the facility's Halloween decorated suites and participated in an array of activities.
LA Galaxy players Todd Dunivant, Omar Gonzalez, Mike Magee and Tony Sanneh made a special appearance and passed out candy to the Trick-or-Treaters, took pictures and signed autographs. The players also helped to pick the winners during the Treats-n-Suites Costume Parade.
2009 Miss LA Galaxy Katrina Lopez, 2010 Miss LA Galaxy Nicola Wales-Wong and Court Members Elizabeth Gomez and Alondra Suarez attended the event and assisted with the pumpkin decorating and lead the children during the Costume Parade.
In addition to visiting with the Galaxy players, children had the opportunity to participate in bag and pumpkin decorating, coloring contest, face painting, slime station and parade. Procter & Gamble brought their mascot Mr. Pringles, an inflatable walkabout, to take photos and interact with the kids. Kids received Galaxy posters and soccer balls and had the opportunity to kick soccer balls with the Accuracy Shot from the Galaxy Street Team. The Carson Sheriff’s Department and the World of Free Masonry provided free Child Identification Kits, Children’s Dental Group sent each child home with dental tips and supplies while Game Time Parties delivered fun for all with video games.
The Los Angeles Galaxy Foundation and The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation would like to thank Jelly Belly, JAKKS Pacific Inc., and Disguise for its donation and the Galaxy’s Community Development interns, U.S. Soccer, The Home Depot Center's Administrative and Premium Seating departments, and X Games for decorating the suites.
A special thank you to all our volunteers for making Treats-n-Suites a success!
