Our third LA's BEST Park Day was a huge success! The event, put on by LA's BEST Friends, our young professionals group, is a fun day of outdoor play with LA's BEST kids! This year, activities included water baloon tosses, relay races, obstacle courses and more at Cheviot Hills Park. LA's BEST kids were also treated to lunch by the Fatburger truck. Many thanks to our sponsors: DreamWorks Animation, Fatburger, Glaceau, Junk Food Clothing, PepsiCo, and Pop Chips.
