The "Miracle on El Paseo" is not just a holiday party. It is an event that focuses on funding services, resources and education for cancer patients.

"Miracle on El Paseo" may feature people sipping on bubbly champagne, boutiques with fancy items inside and a sixty foot tall Christmas tree. But the Christmas spirit is all about giving back.

Nicholas Gonzalez, known for his role in "Narcos," is giving back to the community. Aside from lighting up the tall Christmas tree in the middle of the area, surrounded by retail shops, the actor will also mingle with the crowd. According to the Desert Sun, the "Pretty Little Liar" and "The Flash" actor is going to be the honorary chair of the event. Aside from Gonzalez, Berlin is also going to perform with her band.

Gonzalez says he is flattered to be able to join such an event. The actor himself confesses that he has done a lot of work with cancer charities. He feels quite open to working with children who have the unfortunate illness.

Aside from raising funds for the cause, the event is also a celebration for and thanks giving for those who are working hard for the charity so cancer patients can get the help and resources they need. The event looks like it is going to be a successful one. Last year's record raked in 2,000 attendees.

In the spirit of the holiday season, the scene is going to include a ferris wheel, carnival rides and games plus live entertainment aside from Berlin's performance. But games and entertainment are not the only things in store for attendees. Twenty five restaurants are participating at the event with six bars set up around the area.

Entertainment and holiday cheers are available for everyone who are going to join the fund raising event this Saturday, November 19, 2016. Find out if Gonzalez is going to take a chance on the zipline at El Paseo.
