This is a fantastic event. Little kids can meet Santa tonight. The beauty of the trees, wreaths, etc is amazing. This is a great opportunity to get in the spirit of the season.

How many residents of Pleasanton know where on VIneyard Ave. the Palm Event Center is? There are two Vineyard Avenues. Which one are we talking about?

Can we please get through Thanksgiving first? Great cause, bad timing.
