VNY Brings Holiday Cheer to Gault Elementary Students

On December 19th, Van Nuys Airport celebrated the holidays by bringing fun, Christmas cheer, and even Santa Claus to the students of its adopted school – Gault Elementary in Van Nuys.

The students at Gault were treated to a festive holiday party during which Santa Claus arrived, accompanied by a Reindeer (Andrea Chisolm [Management Aide], Snowman (Tony Goff [Building Repairer], and two elves (Ben Nematzadeh, Jr. [Airport Guide] and Renee Keilman [Volunteer]). Santa's helpers arrived at Gault Elementary on one of VNY’s street sweepers decorated as a large present.

Santa brought gifts for each student and read, “The Night Before Christmas.” Entertainment was provided by Cowboy Ken.

“This is the highlight of the Holidays for me,” said Diana Sanchez, VNY’s Public and Community Relations Director. “Just seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces and knowing that we made their day a little brighter is a great way to get into the Holiday spirit.”
