Tickets go on sale Friday for the annual Breakfast with Santa in downtown Davis. This year’s event, sponsored by the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge and the Davis Rebekah Lodge, will take place Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St.
This year, the breakfast will be served in the Upper Hall, and Santa and his elves will great the children in a Winter Wonderland created in the Lower Hall.
Seating is limited and tickets are not sold at the door. Tickets are $9 each (for adults and children) and include a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, orange slices and cinna-bread from Woodstock’s Pizza, a goodie bag for each child and an opportunity to take a photo with Santa. Parents are encouraged to bring their own cameras to record the event.
Tickets are for sale at The Avid Read, 617 Second St., and Common Grounds, 2171 Cowell Blvd.
Due to the extreme popularity of this event, there will be three seatings — at 8, 9:30 and 11 a.m. — and tickets may be purchased (subject to availability) for any of the seatings.
“We are delighted to present this fun event for the children and families of Davis,” said event co-chairs Lea Rosenberg and Barb Geisler. “But only 120 tickets are available for each seating and they go really fast.”
In past years, tickets sold out within two weeks.
Breakfast with Santa is made possible by food donations from the Davis Food Co-op, Woodstock’s Pizza, Mazzetta Foods and Kona Coast Food Products, and Puroast Low Acid Coffee.
Proceeds from the event will go to programs helping foster children during their time in the system and as they emancipate to adulthood.
