What’s New in PQ?

Winter on the Rancho brings thoughts of celebrations with friends and loved ones. Winter is also a time where we recognize our blessings and make an extra effort to help those less fortunate. It is with these thoughts that the Rancho Peñasquitos Town Council presents its 4th Annual Cookies and Cocoa with Santa event. This festive event is also a gift drive to support foster kids with Voices for Children – we hope you can donate a new item from the special list on the event page, such as a soft toy, book, or gift card for Santa to deliver to deserving children. Here are some details:

Date & Time: Dec. 3, 2017 from 1 to 5 p.m.
Location: Hotel Karlan
Special Guests: Voices For Children – CASA and child representatives
Refreshments: Cookies, cocoa, and treats
Entertainment: Local schools will bring their musical talents with choir and orchestras playing holiday tunes
Cost: Free

As you can see, it will be a wonderful family event. Please be sure to check out our Facebook and website for more details.
