With a quick turn around to bring a family fun event, the Moose Jaw Health Foundation and SaskWater are excited to be holding the third annual Sundae with Santa this month.
Taking place the same weekend as the Festival of Trees, this is a family-friendly event meant for everyone, and most importantly, will benefit the Dr F. H. Wigmore Regional Hospital.
"We wanted to ensure that when it was created that it was affordable for everyone," Kelly McElree, Executive Director of the Health Foundation said. "You know, Festival of Trees, it's really a weekend [long event] and Sundae with Santa is where everyone can come and have a fantastic sundae, meet Santa, and look at some of the beautiful Christmas tree displays from many different businesses throughout the community."
With volunteers from SaskWater, there will be sundaes, thanks to South Hill Fine Foods, crafts, a photo booth, and other family fun activities.
With 400 tickets available for the November 18th event, a complete sell-out will be a huge benefit for our local hospital.
"Its a wonderful, wonderful time," McElree said. "And really, for a lot of people, it's a fantastic way to feel that holiday spirit and when they come and buy a ticket for 'Sundae with Santa,' a hundred percent of the proceeds go back to support the paediatrics unit at our hospital."
Tickets are available at the Health Foundation Office at the Dr F. H. Regional Hospital or at the Heritage Inn.
