Grovel Alert: Breakfast With Santa

Breakfast with Santa*

Thanks to Toyota, the Dallas Holiday Parade will commence on at 10 a.m. Saturday, December 2, in downtown Dallas. And what better way to kick off the celebration than to have breakfast with the man of the season — Santa Claus.

The Women’s Auxiliary of Children’s Medical Center Dallas have connections with North Pole types and have arranged for the ho-hoing whiskered fellow at the Adolphus at 8:30 a.m. for the 29th Annual Breakfast with Santa.

In addition to delicious breakfast just before the parade starts in front of the Adolphus, there will be face painting, balloon artists, clowns, magicians, character appearances and so much more. Sorry, but Rudolph won’t make it. Seems he has an early morning workout to prepare for his Christmas Eve romp.

So, before basting that turkey, gobble up some of the last remaining tickets for your kids and grandkids. Tickets are available here!

Women’s Auxiliary Of Children’s Medical Center Decked The Halls With Loads Of Wreaths

While the doors of The Trains at NorthPark were opening to the public on Saturday, November 21, the Dallas Chapter of Women’s Auxiliary of Children’s Medical Center folks were like Santa’s elves over at Children’s Medical Center. Actually, the gathering looked more like kids themselves. Plus there were a lot of fellas in the crowd.

They were gathered downstairs in the Butterfly Atrium that was filled with 200 individually decorated wreaths arranged by Co-Chairs Brittany George and Kelly Novel. Each one had been sponsored/produced by “Auxiliary members, families, scout troops and corporate groups” for the patients who were in residence for the holidays.

Women’s Auxiliary President Joanna Clarke fessed up that some of the hottie wreaths were classics that hibernated in a special spots when not at Children’s.

No sooner had instructions been given, than off like reindeer on Christmas Eve the teams with wreaths in hand were on their way to “deck the halls.”

And they didn’t dawdle. They still had to get things lined up for the  27th Annual Breakfast with Santa preceding the 28th annual Children’s Health Holiday Parade.

BTW, don’t expect to see the Auxiliary team early on New Year’s Eve. According to Joanna, they’ll be serving “a special meal to the families in the critical care units.”

If you’re looking for a group to join that has a great time helping others, consider signing up with the Auxiliary.
