Organizers of the "Christmas Care-All: Past, Presents and Future" hoped for, but perhaps never really expected, the whopping turnout that showed up at Spring Street Studios for the holiday bash benefiting the Children's Assessment Center.

More than 400 revelers poured in to join in gingerbread house-making, pie-throwing into the faces of local personalities, snapping photos in the Smilebooth or with characters from Galveston's Dickens on the Strand, bidding in the silent auction, noshing from food trucks and rocking to the progressive metal sounds of Bagheera. There was plenty of action for partygoers that brought in more than 800 toys and books. along with dollars for the non-profit. Even the food trucks — Eatsie Boys, Good Dog and Oh My Gogi! —donated 20 percent of proceeds to CAC.

Lauren Tennet and Emily Van Keppel of the Black Sheep Agency rounded up 29 businesses to participate in the charity night. Among those providing various goods or services for the event were 8th Wonder Brewery, 20K Group, Down House, Interrobang Wine Merchants and Thiessen Law Firm. Black Swan Screen Printing provided the "Give a Damn" T-shirts that raised additional dollars.

Kicking up their heels in the giving spirit of the holidays were Mark C. Austin, Hannah Thibodeaux, Ashley Wyatt, David Tong, Michelle Sacks, Thai Tong, Bob Martin, Carlos Rubio, Lucinda Dickens Hawksley, Mitchell Olszewski, Laurette Cañizares, Mark Thiessen, David Tyson Moore, Nashira Arnó, John Neitz, Christine Neitz and Will Wright.
