Don’t forget to mark your calendars for all of the special events and festivities to close out the year. For those who enjoy giving as much a receiving, ATOMIC has teamed up with H.A.N.D.S. On International to hold a toy drive for homeless children in the area. The great news is that there is more than one way to lend a helping hand! Your contribution can be as small and simple as donating a new, unwrapped toy; making a monetary donation; or by donating your time to volunteer a few hours in the Long Beach toy store on 12/19 or 12/20. E-mail Genesis@helpingallnations.com to sign up or for more information.

In addition to all of this, there will of course be plenty of dancing! Stop by the ballroom for a festive frolic every night beginning at 8:30 P.M., from December 19th through December 23rd.
