Sparks Visit the Girls Club of Los Angeles
On Tuesday, December 15, the Sparks stopped by the Girls Club of Los Angeles to read to and play with almost one hundred underprivileged kids.
The event started with the Sparks reading several books to the children of the Girls Club. They then played pin the tail on the donkey, with the tail being a Sparks logo. Blind folded, the kids attempted to pin the logo on the basketball in a life size Lisa Leslie poster for prizes.
After stories, games and some crafts, the classroom of children were surprised with the appearance of Sparky. Sparky passed out holiday gift bags to the kids, posed for pictures with all of the children and gave high-fives to his young fans.
