Photograph article dated December 3, 1964 partially reads, "The authentic Danish Christmas party was given by Peter F. Heering, fifth generation president of the company producing that famous Cherry Heering liqueur. His great great grandfather (a contemporary and acquaintance of Hans Christian Andersen) started the company's wonderful custom of treating underprivileged children. Tuesday's guests were 40 kids from Hollygrove Children's Home and the East Los Angeles Boys Club. They were introduced to the lovely Danish Christmas traditions and given a boatload of imported presents."
