Honorary Mayor of Toluca Lake, Fritz Coleman, who is also the top weather reporter at KNBC, spoke very kindly of the group after the segment. Thanks to reporter Angie Crouch for coming by to visit!

The Kling Street Kids are back again for the ELEVENTH year this December 23rd and 24th on Kling Street in Toluca Lake! Once again, all of the money raised is donated to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (Tax ID# 95-1690977! They are selling Starbucks Coffee, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Hot Chocolate, Pizza, other baked goods, gift items and much, more more. Again this year, the signature Pillow Pet adoption and the Glitter Tattoos will all be back.., and the best part – TEN TONS OF REAL SNOW so kids of all ages can have a bit of a winter wonderland and go sledding in Southern California during the holiday season. They also have a fabulous SILENT AUCTION with items such as: Lakers tickets, Clippers tickets, Universal Tickets, a one-hour voice lesson with the American Idol coaches, tickets to the VOICE and many other great items! The Kling Street Kids have raised over $95,000 since they began back in 2002 (with 4 kids ages 7-9) and now have over 80 members a part of this event. This year, they are easily going to pass the 100,000 mark and they really hope to see you there!
