Santa To Meet Cancer Patients This Saturday

More than 300 local children battling cancer and their families will be treated to a visit from Santa Claus on Saturday, Dec. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

The annual event is sponsored by the Kids Cancer Foundation and promises to be a festive and fun event for all thanks to the successful toy and gift card drives organized by many local benefactors.

Families will be treated to a breakfast buffet made possible by Once A Month Charities and Starbucks of Wellington. Everyone will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with Santa, create a special holiday craft sponsored by Home Depot of Royal Palm Beach, decorate gingerbread men, see Santa ride in on the fire truck and best of all enjoy a morning far removed from the doctor’s office and the hospital. In addition, to every child receiving an Aeropostale Bear from Santa, each family will also receive gift cards and a bag filled with age-appropriate toys and games for their children.
