Santa Makes Dreams Come True at ABC Party

The third floor of the Gateway Medical Building became Santa’s workshop on Thursday, Dec. 20 when nearly 200 children representing 87 families stopped by for a visit to the ABC Clinic Holiday Party.  


“This was by far the largest party that we’ve ever had since I’ve been at NorthBay,” exclaimed an enthusiastic but exhausted Carla Lewis, administrative support specialist.


The first ABC party took place in 2002. With the partnership of Genentech of Vacaville, NorthBay Healthcare and the entire team of the ABC Clinic, a bilingual Santa Claus was able to hand out stuffed teddy bears to each child, who then made an ornament and walked into Santa’s Workshop to select a toy of their choice.


Toys were collected from various groups, including the NorthBay Guild.
