On December 16 the John Lynch Foundation hosted the 2009 Lynch's Christmas Party with the Boys & Girls Clubs at Prima Ristorante, in downtown Denver. Ten very deserving underprivileged youth were invited to attend this special evening which included a surprise visit from Santa (bearing gifts!), a delicious three course meal, and a trip to see the Christmas classic, The Nutcracker.
Through this event the John Lynch Foundation was able to make Christmas wishes come true for a group of children. The Foundation worked closely with Boys & Girls Club directors to identify children who would not otherwise have received a traditional Christmas and then secretly gathered wish lists from each of the children.
As the children arrived they worked on letters to soldiers to show their appreciation for all they do to protect our company. The children ordered from a custom designed menu and enjoyed their 'fancy' dinners. As they were finishing their desserts, Santa arrived and had a special delivery for each child.
One by one the children were called up to sit on Santa's lap, pose for a picture with Santa and John, and get their gift bag. As the presents were opened the room was filled with squeals of delight, surprise and excitement. The children received the specific items they had wished for including tennis shoes, games, clothes, athletic equipment, dolls, books, etc..
This was the 13th Annual Lynch Christmas Party and to date the Foundation has made spirits bright for more than 300 youngsters.
