Nearly 180 Boys & Girls Club members participated in food, song and various arts and crafts activity stations during the event organized by McDaniel College's Center for Experience and Opportunity and the President's Office.

Mrs. Claus and North Pole elves also made an appearance and surprised each Boys & Girls Club member with a sweatshirt supported by donations from McDaniel College students, staff, and faculty.

The annual holiday party began in 2011 to celebrate the partnership between McDaniel and the Boys & Girls Club. McDaniel students have been involved in a number of initiatives with the Boys & Girls Club, including serving as mentors, academic tutors and program facilitators at the club.
