Young guests will have their photos taken with Santa and receive a toy, while Anthony Coogs will be entertaining the dancing crowd. In addition, Grammy Award nominee and Billboard Magazine charting artist Felicia Punzo will be performing.
While the event is free, guests are asked to each bring an unwrapped new toy for the children in St Jude.
There will also be a new and used children’s coat collection benefiting local children’s charities.
“Last year we donated 1000 toys,” said Ronald Charles, who spearheads the event with his family each year. “This year it’s going to be bigger and better.”
“Come take a free picture with Santa, have some refreshments, dance and have a good time for a good cause,” said Charles. “The entire event is free from our sponsors. All we ask is that you bring an unwrapped toy for the children in the hospital.”
