Middle school-age children from the Westchester/Playa del Rey Cotillion donated toys for the Toys for Tots drive Saturday, December 8th.

Los Angeles city firefighters from Station #5 in Westchester collected the toys for distribution to underprivileged children.

Ken and Teresa Shiry teach the cotillion classes once a month for children to learn ballroom dancing and etiquette.

There is a different theme each month, such as big band swing, swing and foxtrot, holiday ball, waltz and cha-cha, 1950s sock hop, sweetheart ball, tango and rumba, urban fever, salsa and hip hop.
