YMCA at the Athenaeum Breakfast with Santa

Dec 9, 2023, 7:30 AM - 12:00 PM

presented by YMCA @ the Athenaeum

Breakfast with Santa, on Saturday December 9th, is the biggest outreach event for the YMCA at the Athenaeum

Families are invited to Breakfast with Santa from downtown shelters and organizations providing for our underserved neighbors. After an enjoyable breakfast, grown-ups get to shop for presents for the kiddos (stockings, books, and toys), while the kiddos enjoy some entertainment (magic, face painting, balloon artists, and glitter tattoos) and get to shop for presents for a grown-up in their life, and everyone gets to visit with Santa!
