Bringing Holiday Cheer to Make-A-Wish Families

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department Reserves hosted a Holiday Cruise for more than 50 Make-A-Wish children and their families. The cruise this year was one of the best attended with more than 230 in attendance.

Onboard the Electra Cruises boat Eternity, the “Wish Kids” and their families cruised around brightly-lit Newport Harbor for views of the holiday lights. Magicians, carolers, face-painting, dancing and food kept the Wish Kids occupied until Santa arrived via OCSD fire boat and gave each Wish Kid a present.

This annual event orchestrated by OCSD Reserve Captain Jay Wasserman is staffed by Reserve volunteers and supported by donations.
