Ultras give over 400 kids a reason to smile

By Olivia Cervantes

It was a day full of smiles as Chivas USA’s supporter group the Union Ultras held their first ‘Dia de los Reyes’ (Three Kings Day) Toy Giveaway on Sunday afternoon in Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Sun Valley.

Before the event, CDChivasUSA.com spoke with Ultras representatives, who estimated that they had around toys for about 100+ kids. But on Friday and Saturday night, the Ultras began gathering more toys and gifts for the event, including donations from Chivas USA. On the big day, over 400 children were given a gift to celebrate the holiday.

“It was nice to see so many children smiling and happy,” said Ultras representative Julio Ramos. Also in attendance, the infamous ChivaFighter helped the Ultras put those smiles on children’s’ faces as he interacted with the kids and their families.  Click here to view a gallery of the event.
