Kick off the holiday season with us on the 2nd of December at the Ayres Hotel Hawthorne/Manhattan Beach and Matisse Restaurant for our Holiday Open House. We invite you to bring your friends and loved ones to celebrate with us for a day filled with fun, family, and festivities.
Our Holiday Open House is scheduled from 12:00 p.m. till 4:00 p.m. and you are invited to drop in any time. There is no cost to attend, and the event will feature a variety of activities for everyone.
Join us for Storytime by the Fireplace and take family holiday photos by the Christmas Tree with our professional photographer. California Carolers will perform a variety of Christmas tunes while you make holiday ornaments and decorate cookies. We are also offering games & crafts for the children, along with whimsical face painting. Adults may enjoy Beer & Wine Tasting in the courtyard and don't forget to stop by the Cookie, Cocoa and Apple Cider Bar to partake in a little holiday cheer.
Be sure to buy a ticket for our Gingerbread House Raffle. Westchester Bakery is donating a magical Gingerbread House to display in the lobby and guests may purchase tickets for $5 each. All proceeds from the raffle will go to benefit cancer patients at City of Hope Hospital, Sherie Di Bernardo Lymphoma Foundation.
Sherie Di Bernardo was our beloved chef at Matisse Restaurant who recently passed after her three-year battle with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The Sherie Di Bernardo Lymphoma Foundation was established to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise awareness for those fighting the disease. Sherie has left an indelible memory on everyone who knew her, and her legacy will not be forgotten.
We look forward to celebrating with you at our Holiday Open House…because YOU are the best part of what we do!
