Winners of the local’s holiday sparkle competition.

The SAG-AFTRA L.A. Local Annual Winter Celebration doused members in sparkles and cheer at SAG-AFTRA Plaza on Dec. 11. Bringing in more than 1,000 attendees, the event, themed “ ’Tis the Season to Sparkle,” had members arriving in their holiday best. Following with tradition, members filled the toy and food drive collection bins, enjoyed a holiday feast, ate delicious desserts, listened to festive carolers and delighted in the joy of being together.

New to the party were the pop-up photo booth, complimentary headshot station, sparkliest holiday attire competition, a station for letter-writing to overseas U.S. military heroes and take-home gifts for all attendees. Remarks were given by SAG-AFTRA L.A. First Vice President and National Board member Frances Fisher and SAG-AFTRA L.A. Host Committee Chair and L.A. Local Board member Lisa Ann Walter. There is truly no better way to spend the holiday season than with your SAG-AFTRA family.
