ColorProof Evolved Color Care® Founders, Jim and Cheryl Markham welcomed friends & colleagues to their Newport Coast home for ColorProof’s annual holiday open house to celebrate the season, reflect on a remarkable year, and most importantly, fulfill the wishes of hundreds of disadvantaged children.
Each guest had the opportunity to donate unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots, a charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve that provides toys to children in need during the holiday season. With over 250 guests in attendance, the toy bins were overflowing with gifts sure to bring much-needed joy and happiness to children in need. Guests mingled over cocktails and dinner and later enjoyed a special appearance by the Grinch and three of his “Santa’s helpers” who put on a captivating performance that had guests rolling with laughter.
“Every year we look forward to opening our home to show our gratitude and celebrate the season with friends and colleagues, old and new,” says Markham. “Our annual party gives everyone a chance to relax and have fun while also providing the opportunity to spread a little goodwill to children who might have been overlooked. The holidays are a time for giving back, and we were overjoyed to see the incredible generosity of our guests. Their donations are sure to make it a very merry Christmas for many, many kids.”
