Police Athletic League Hosts Holiday Party For 1,000 Plus Kids

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — The Police Athletic League held its annual holiday party in Harlem on Saturday.

More than 1,000 boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 9 joined in the fun, which includes arts and crafts, carnival booths and even the chance to get a photo with a real live Radio City Music Hall Rockette.

Pal’s honorary chairman is a familiar face who once participated in PAL programs as a kid.

“And for 70 years, PAL has done great things for young people of New York City, including myself, many, many years ago,” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

More than a dozen corporate donors helped make the event possible.

    Nice idea, but I hope Ray Kelly stayed home. He is a scary man and the poor kids would have nightmares for years!
