United Way to revive "Breakfast with Santa"

United Way to revive "Breakfast with Santa"

November 19th, 2013 by Elyssa Mann in News

Breauna Hollis, then aged 6, has a talk in 2010 with Santa about bringing her a pony and a playhouse for Christmas. The Callaway County United Way's Breakfast with Santa will return this year after a hiatus Dec. 7 at the Callaway Senior Center.

Santa's coming early this year - and he'll be in close company with the Grinch. On Saturday, Dec. 7, the Callaway County United Way will be sponsoring "Breakfast with Santa and the Grinch," which will be at the Callaway Senior Center 9-11 a.m.

The event typically happens annually, but wasn't held last year because the United Way wasn't seeing a huge response to the event.

"We've revamped it this year," said Glenn Harris, board president of the Callaway County United Way. "We're putting in a new twist with the Grinch, and we're hoping to drive in more people from the community."

Children will be able to spend time with both Santa and the Grinch while eating breakfast, playing games, doing crafts and more.

"We hope to see a lot of kids come in," Harris said. "That's the best part, seeing the kids."

Tickets for the breakfast can be purchased at Bank Star One, Central Bank, RE/MAX or at the door on Dec. 7. Tickets can also be purchased by calling 573-642-0536. The cost is $7.50 for adults, $5 for children 4-12 and free for children under three.

This event is one of several fundraisers left this year for the United Way, which is trying to raise $265,000 this year. The fundraising year began in September, and so far 80 percent of the goal has been raised.
