Breakfast with Santa

Breakfast with Santa at St. Francis Manor was fun for all ages! Over 170 people including four generations of the Madolyn Braley, Gary Foster, and Pat Johnson families gathered for an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. From babies to 90-year-olds, most enjoyed seeing the jolly elf; however, there were a few who couldn’t be coaxed with a candy cane to sit on Santa’s lap! Some of Santa’s elves better known as Seeland Park residents assisted with serving drinks and clearing tables. The event raised just over $2,000 to benefit the St. Francis Manor Foundation in its fundraising efforts to purchase a new van for resident transportation.
