Breakfast with Santa

Fundraiser at the Prestige will benefit those in need.

Santa Claus is coming to Nelson for breakfast and the public is invited to join him.

On December 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. a full hot breakfast buffet will be served in the ballroom of the Prestige Hotel as the third annual Breakfast With Santa event returns.

Everyone is invited to take part. Donations of cash or food items are being accepted instead of an admission fee. (A suggested minimum donation is $5 per adult and $2.50 for kids.)

Cass Rhapsody will rock out with some Christmas beats and the dance floor will be open!

The Heritage Harmony Barber Shop Chorus is expected to pay a visit, although that has yet to be confirmed.

Cadyshack Promotions will be on hand to host A Christmas Carnival. Tickets for the carnival are also by donation with prizes for all the kids.

There will also be a raffle (tickets will be on sale during the event) for some great prizes, including the grand prize of a two-night stay   at the Prestige in one of the deluxe suites with $100 gift certificate for the West Coast Grill.

Costumed characters, including elves, snowmen and, of course, Santa will also be on hand.

The event is first-come, first-served with a limit of about 250 people.

Last year the breakfast was a big success, raising close to $2,500 in cash and food. All proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Nelson Food Cupboard and the Nelson Real Estate Fund@ the Osprey Community Foundation. (For more details on the fund, visit (

Sponsors of this event include Save On Foods, Nelson Star, West Coast Grill, Prestige Lakeside Resort, Juice FM and the  Live in the Koots Team with Fair Realty.
