Christmas songs are running through my head and November has just arrived! It's hard to believe that the 29th Annual Breakfast With Santa (BWS) and Silent Auction is just one month from today!
Saturday, December 2nd from 8 am - 10:30 am in the Leon Valley Community Center, the holiday season begins in earnest. BWS and Silent Auction is a long running tradition and fund raiser in Leon Valley. Hosted by the Friends of the Leon Valley Library and the Library itself (who provides support for the Silent Auction), this event gives the children their first visit with Santa for the season!
Staring at 8 am, breakfast will be available - scrumptious breakfast tacos, fruit, coffee, and juice are always part of the menu. You can purchase breakfast tickets ahead of time at the Library (6425 Evers Road) for $5.00. Upon entering the event, you redeem your ticket for food coupons....purchasing in advance will get you SIX dollars worth of food coupons for your $5 ticket (day of the event coupons are higher priced so pick up a ticket early for savings!).
All costs for food and pictures with Santa are minimal to cover the outlay incurred by the Friends Group and to keep the pricing low for young families.
We have Christmas music, craft tables selling their goodies and a HUGE SILENT AUCTION! Come prepared to do some early shopping. Our most popular items are always the gift certificates and gift cards. We have had incredible support from local businesses and silent auction items at this time include......
...Passes to Sea World
...Passes to the San Antonio Zoo
...Passes to the Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo
...Gift Certificates to Leon Valley Cafe
...Gift Certificates to Bill Millers
We also have some incredible items for auction. Great holiday shopping time....hint hint!
There will be tables available for vendors to set their crafts up for sale. Cost to have a table is $10 plus a donation to our silent auction. Contact Sandy at the library to arrange for a table and get an agreement form.
This is only a teaser of what is to come. If you haven't been to this event before, please make room in your schedule to join us. We are enjoying seeing children that came to the first breakfasts back with THEIR children. That alone tells me that this truly is an event worth making room in your schedule for.
If you have any questions, please call the library at 210-684-0720. See you December 2nd!
