Christmas came early for 120 homeless children from St. Vincent de Paul Village, when escorted by San Diego Harley Davidson Owners, they arrived in limos on Dec. 9 to the 13th annual Christmas Caroling Party on the rooftop of the La Jolla Cove Suites.

The kids, ages 4 to 17, were treated to face-painting, refreshments, visits with Santa Claus, music and toys. Krista Baroudi, CEO of the Cove Suites, hosted the event.

Also participating were the Kiwanis Club, the La Jolla Rotary, San Diego Pad Squad, University of Dayton Alumni, Lawinfo.com employees, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and local residents.
