Ada S. McKinley staff closed out our Centennial year in style with a very special holiday celebration held at the South Shore Cultural Center. The red-carpet style gathering brought together the employees who make it happen daily across programs and locations serving over 7,000 people annually.

Festivities included recognition of long-serving staff, music, food, raffle prizes, and our annual Holiday Toy Drive for children served by Ada’s foster care, emergency shelter, head start, and behavioral health programs. Live music was provided by Mytyme Jazz Zsoul Funk Band.  iHeart Media, our 100-Year Anniversary Media Partner, joined the party as hosts and provided other entertainment which included radio personality Bioncé Foxx, DJ Maurice “ICE” Culpepper, and their holiday mascot Edison the Reindeer.
