Annual Winter Wonderland 2023 in Partnership with Boston Properties
On Friday, December 16 we hosted our Annual Winter Wonderland event, in partnership with Boston Properties. With the Salesforce Tower and Rooftop Park as a backdrop, approximately 200 kids from Gordon J. Lau Elementary School, Longfellow Elementary School, Lawton Alternative, and Visitacion Valley Elementary School met Santa and his reindeer and got to take pictures with them. The holiday spirit was in full effect as kids took part in ice skating, arts and crafts, a jump house, and other fun games. The event was catered with decadent tacos, quesadillas, and a nachos buffet and Boudin Bakery provided Christmas-themed cookies. Officers from the Community Engagement Division and many District Stations enjoyed interacting with the kids. Smiles could be seen and laughs could be heard from across the Salesforce Plaza. Several students and teachers from all schools personally thanked our SFPD Officers for their unselfish service to the community. A big SFPAL Thank You goes to Boston Properties for their continued support and partnership. A special shout out to Bob Pester, John Loftus, Greg Suhr, Steve Colvin, Michael Choung, Laura Kerl, Lani Volz, Logan Allen, Anne Chung, Shirley Xavier, Alexis Chinchilla, Amy Wu, Alex Bautista, Garnette Ransone, Amber Brown, Alicia Barr, Alexandra Lehr, Brodie Pattinson, Taylor Sawyer, Kayleen Feeney, Malinda Min, and Abby Dong for helping make this special day a great success.
