PHOENIX -- The D-backs played Santa for a few hundred kids on Monday night with their fifth annual Holiday Party at the MLB All-Star Arizona Diamondbacks Boys & Girls Club, located south of downtown Phoenix, just five miles from Chase Field. However, the big surprise was an early holiday gift of $100,000 from the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation for the facility to provide a new gym for the kids to enjoy for years to come.
Kids at the D-backs Boys & Girls Club were treated to a toy, pictures with Santa, dinner provided by Raising Canes, games and a craft station. D-backs employees assisted kids with the holiday decorations and each kid was able to select a toy from a secret toy room filled with everything from a skateboard to a doll from the movie Frozen.
