Community members host breakfast with Santa Claus
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio —
Community members in Brilliant had the chance to eat some pancakes with Santa Claus Sunday.
It was the Buckeye North Elementary School's first ever breakfast with Santa.
Kids and their families were able to enjoy breakfast, have their pictures taken with Santa Claus, and check out a free craft show.
All of the proceeds raised from the breakfast will go to the school's Parent Teacher Organization to help with events throughout the year.
Organizers say they wanted to try a new type of fundraiser this year for the PTO.
"Everyone likes pancakes, everyone likes to shop, everyone likes Santa,” said PTO President Kelly Young. “I just wanted to try something different to get more people involved, the public involved, and see how well we did with it instead of your normal fundraising - kids selling stuff."
Organizers hope to make this fundraiser an annual event.
