NBA all-star player Chris Paul spread holiday cheer at The Grove, where he hosted 25 students from Baldwin Hills Elementary School’s LA’s BEST After School Enrichment Program as a part of a special charity event for Feed the Children. During the special red carpet event, children enjoyed a reading by Paul of the book, “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” a visit from Santa, and guest appearances from popular holiday characters. All students received an autographed copy of the book, participated in an ornament decorating activity and rode a trolley around The Grove.

LA’s BEST provides an after school program to 25,000 elementary school students in 193 schools in the most economically distressed neighborhoods throughout the City of Los Angeles.
