Mr and Mrs Santa Claus are coming to Hampstead for breakfast. He will visit with good little boys and girls on Saturday, Dec, 13, 9-11 a.m. at the Hampstead Women’s Club building.
Breakfast with Santa is sponsored by the Hampstead Women’s Club and the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce. This is the second year the two local non-profit organizations have partnered together on a project. The two groups will divide the proceeds and use them to fund scholarships.
“Santa is coming to town,” said Patricia Truscello, president of the Hampstead Women’s Club. “He is stopping here to have breakfast.”
Truscello said volunteers from the chamber and women’s club will cook up sausage and pancakes.
“Each child will have an opportunity to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what they want for Christmas,” said Tammy Proctor, executive director of the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce. “We encourage parents to bring their cameras and take photos.”
Tickets are on sale now. Tickets are $5 each. Children under the age of 2 are admitted free with a parent’s ticket. Tickets are available from the Hampstead Thrift Store, 14435 US Hwy. 17, or from the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce at 13775 Hwy 50 in Surf City.
“We are members of the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce,” said Truscello. “We are pleased to partner with the chamber in an event that will bring holiday cheer to families. The proceeds will benefit children of the community through scholarships.
