On December 13, Heather Tom (Katie, B&B) threw her annual Christmas party for her friends and family at her home in Glendale, CA. Wearing a dress designed by Herve Leger, Heather dedicated the evening to the Jenesee Women’s Shelter of Los Angeles County.

Heather’s guests were asked to donate food, gift cards and clothing to the Jenesee Shelter and she even had a U-Haul van available for all the donations, which were delivered the next day. The Jenesee Women’s Shelter operates six safe houses for women and their children looking for a new start on life by learning to stand on their own two feet.

Heather’s guest list included many other soap stars including, William deVry (ex-Storm, B&B), Winsor Harmon (Thorne, B&B), Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke, B&B), Robin Riker (Beth, B&B), Tuc Watkins (David, One Life to Live) Kate Linder (Ester, The Young and the Restless), and Tonya Lee Williams (Olivia, Y&R), as well as her brother and sister David (ex-Paul, OLTL) and Nicholle Tom.

As always, Soaps.com is impressed by Heather’s charitable efforts and her willingness to use her good fortune to help others.
