Enjoy a chance to eat Breakfast with Santa

The second annual event takes place at the ballroom of the Prestige Hotel and is free but attendees are asked to bring donations.

On December 21, from 9 to 11 a.m. the public is invited to enjoy a special Breakfast with Santa.

The second annual event takes place at the ballroom of the Prestige Hotel (the space has been donated courtesy of Ric’s Grill) and features a hot breakfast buffet. The event is free but attendees are asked to bring donations of food or cash.

The inaugural event raised more than $1,800 for the Nelson Food Cupboard as well as a significant amount of food.

This year the proceeds will be split between the Nelson Food Cupboard and the Nelson Real Estate Fund (the Osprey Community Foundation).

During the breakfast, photos with Santa, taken by photographer Colin Payne, will be available by donation. Also, Deejay Terrantino will rock out with some Christmas beats and the dance floor will be open.

The Heritage Harmony Barber Shop Chorus will pay a visit and Cadyshack Promotions will host “Lets Make a Deal With Santa.” For every food item brought, people will receive one ticket towards the game and a chance to win some great prizes.

Organizers have some great characters this year including elves, the Grinch, a snowman and Santa.

Sponsors of the event include The Nelson Star, Save On Foods, Ric’s Grill, Prestige Lakeside Resort, The Bridge/Mountain FM and the Live in the Koots Team with Fair Realty.
