Next Saturday, December 6th from 9:00 a.m. until Noon, you can go Home Sweet Home in support of Family Shelter Service (FSS). This event is great for the entire family; an opportunity to decorate gingerbread and to breakfast with Santa. Parents and grandparents alike are invited to attend with children and grandchildren.
Everyone will be invited to decorate a pre-assembled gingerbread house and enjoy breakfasting with the big man of the holiday. Breakfast will be served buffet style while holiday carolers perform for the delight of the crowd.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be in attendance, ready to sit with the children and discuss their naughty and nice activities of the year. The Gingerbread Man and friends will also be there to entertain everyone.
The event is the perfect way to kick off a festive holiday season! Tickets are $40 per adult and $25 per child. All ticket prices include gingerbread houses for each guest, breakfast and a photo with Santa.
The breakfast buffet will take place at The Abbington in Glen Ellyn and will be from 9:30 until 11:00 a.m. All the while gingerbread houses can be decorated and Santa will be ready to visit with everyone. There will also be face painting, a balloon artist to the delight of the children and other holiday surprises in store.
There is yet another way to participate in the day and that is by bringing a gift certificate for a child in the shelter. When you do, you are eligible to receive a free raffle ticket!
