The Santa Project

Last evening we attended a fundraiser that is near and dear to our hearts.

Each year at Christmas time Mr. Mickey becomes Mr. Santa for about fifty underprivileged children in our area. In November a group of our friends gather for a wine and cheese fundraiser for the project.

Each child is given a winter coat, shoes, an outfit for school and a toy. The family or guardians are invited to a pizza party just before Christmas. Santa visits with the children and gives them their gifts at the party.

I always enjoy catching up with my sweet friends Una and Lee.

My friend Dianna is a follower and big fan of Fifty, not Frumpy. (She is wearing a Chico's sweater and necklace.) Thank you Dianna for your kind words.

The evening was a huge success and it was great fun visiting with everyone. To top off the evening we saw a big black bear as soon as we entered our neighborhood tonight. It was so beautiful! Hopefully it will safely find it's way back to the mountain where it belongs soon.

Thanks so much for reading my blog. It is always a pleasure to hear from you.
