Foster children in Santa Barbara are in the holiday spirit thanks to local mortgage brokers who teamed up with the Santa Barbara Trolley Company to give the kids an special experience.

Tuesday night, 15 local foster families with a total of 38 kids boarded two trolleys, decked out with Christmas lights and decorations for a special ride through Santa Barbara.

It was the sixth year in a row the Kelly Marsh Team at Cornerstone Home Lending in Santa Barbara has sponsored the Holiday of Lights Trolley Ride. The event was also in partnership with Our County Our Kids, a program of the Santa Barbara County Department of Social Services.

The Kelly Marsh Team doubled as elves, giving the kids gifts from Santa to round out the festive evening.
