Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Sunday was a Christmas party where kids could forget about their medical problems.

Kosair Charities hosted the party for nearly 400 children. 

They got their faces painted, made arts and crafts and played games. 

But most importantly to the youngsters, they got to meet Santa Claus and even went home with gifts, books and stuffed animals from the Louisville Zoo.

Organizers say for some, it will be the only Christmas they have this year.

"This is just a great way for the kids to get out and just be kids again," said Stephanie Smith with Kosair Charities. "A lot of these kids have been going through a lot of medical issues throughout the year."

Also, 100 lucky kids went home with a new bike.
