COAST CITIES — Tickets are now on sale for the San Diego Chapter of Childhelp 24th annual Holiday Fantasia fundraiser.
The Polynesian-themed event will start at 9:30 a.m. Nov. 19 at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad. It will again offer holiday boutique shopping, with vendors and artisans donating a percentage of their sales to support Childhelp.
At noon, guests will enjoy a Polynesian lunch along with Hawaiian entertainment and a presentation of For the Love of a Child award. This year’s award goes to Don and Beth Bewley of Eufora International.

Also a special Angel Award will be presented to foster parents Jamie and Kim Thomas.
The afternoon will feature more shopping and opportunities to learn about the work being done by Childhelp. Proceeds go directly to support the Village of Childhelp in Beaumont, the four group homes in Orange County and the 24-hour support National Hotline, (800) 422-4453.
