With just barely enough time to digest turkey, the weekend of December 7 is going to be as busy as roofers in North Texas. On Saturday, December 7, the day will start off at 10 a.m. with the Dallas Holiday Parade in downtown Dallas. Afterwards folks will have just enough time to have their hair and makeup done before heading to the Crystal Charity Ball that night at the Anatole.
And the fun and fundraising doesn’t stop Saturday night. Bright and early on Sunday, December 8, the Women’s Auxiliary of Children’s Medical Center Dallas will host the 31st Annual Breakfast With Santa Spectacular. Last year’s breakfast was such a hit at NorthPark that the event is returning to the center turning the place into the ultimate G-rated celebration from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Presented by Paulos Foundation and NorthPark, Breakfast Co-Chairs Julie Hagen, Lisa Leet, Andrea Nayfa and Aphrodite Paulos have arranged to have Jamie O’Banion serve as honorary chair and Kimberly Schlegel Whitman and Jessica Nowitzki as advisory co-chairs.
The morning will include performance by dancers and carolers, face painting, balloon artists, a Live Snow Globe and the Santa of all Santas — the NorthPark Santa. He’ll be ho-ho-ho-ing for photo opps with munchkins.
And, of course, there will be all types of goodies for eating. After all, what’s a breakfast without food?
Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit Children’s Medical Center Dallas‘ “leading physicians, specialists and nurses who are committed to providing the best medical care available to every children, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.”
BTW, sponsorships are available and have definite perks like premier seating and early photo opps with NorthPark Santa.
Ah, but there’s a catch. The tickets are getting down to a scant few, so don’t dawdle. Get your reservations in now.
