On Wednesday, December 18, West End House welcomed more than 400 young people and their families for an evening of giving, joy, and holiday cheer. The night kicked off with a delicious holiday dinner prepared from scratch. There was a variety of family-friendly activities and each young person had the opportunity to meet with Santa Claus and receive their own gift.

The Italian-inspired menu for the evening included vegetable lasagna, beef meatballs and garden salad. For dessert we had Lisa’s famous cannolis, completely with zests of orange and colorful sprinkles. This delicious meal was prepared by Senior Director of Fitness and Nutrition Lisa Smith and Kids Café Coordinator Tammie Watson, with support from West End House Peer Leaders and volunteers. bipape.com
