Thanks for the support for the annual Breakfast with Santa

Dear editor,

The 18th annual Breakfast with Santa held at the Vicksburg Convention Center was a huge success. 

It provided hundreds of Vicksburg residents and visitors a joyful holiday experience. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Ronald McDonald House, a “home away from home” for families with seriously ill children living in our area who must travel for medical care.

The community support of this special event is always so appreciated.

On behalf of the Vicksburg Convention Center and VenuWorks of Vicksburg, I would like to give special thanks to our sponsors: McDonald’s, Home Depot, Walmart, Golding Barge Line, Hometown Medical, International Paper, Mutual Credit Union, Maynord Landscaping Company, Inc., Terry Services and Atwood Chevrolet. 

This event would not be possible without their generosity. 

We were very fortunate to have volunteer students from our local junior high and high schools who did everything from taking up tickets and clearing tables to supervising children playing games and doing crafts. 

We couldn’t have done it without them.

Thanks to Gary Haygood, who has volunteered his services year after year by taking all of the “Photos with Santa.” He does such a great job.  

Last but certainly not least, a big thanks to Santa for coming to Vicksburg during his busiest time of the year. 

He provided lots of joy to many boys and girls. We can’t wait to start planning Breakfast with Santa for 2020.
