Tobinworld, a special-needs school in Glendale for emotionally disturbed, autistic and developmentally disabled youth, will host its Annual Holiday Show at 11 a.m. Friday at the campus, 920 E. Broadway, to celebrate the holidays with its 300 students, their parents, friends and supporters.
The event features holiday music and songs performed by a group of Tobinworld staff and students along with refreshments, decorations and tree and a visit from Santa Claus, who hands out gifts to each student, ages 5 to 22.
"It's important at this time of year to provide children and families with a warm sense of holiday," said Judith Weber, founder and executive director.
This year Tobinworld has also opened Tobinworld Treasures, a new retail emporium near the campus at 1006 E. Broadway, that is a destination for high-quality, affordable gifts for the holidays. Tobinworld Treasures is staffed by Tobinworld students as a vocational learning tool and all proceeds benefit the school's programs and services.
