We are proud to announce our 2nd annual “The Night Before Christmas” event.
Our goal is to provide an educational and fun, holiday experience for disadvantaged youth in shelters, youth programs, group homes, and impoverished communities in the Columbia area. Last year, we served approximately 423 children between the ages of 3-12, members of their families, volunteers, and community leaders. We anticipate a 50% increase in attendance this year!
Hosted by Hot 103.9's Beasy Baybie
We have contracted with EdVenture for the date of December 17th 2016, from 6 pm. - 9 pm. Our goal is for this to continue as a yearly event for the disadvantaged youth in Columbia.
“It is our hope, that by allowing the kids to enjoy Christmas and to experience EdVenture…. It will open their mind to the possibilities beyond their current situation and inspire them to think bigger.” – Kimani Davis.
All the toys given away at "The Night before Christmas" are donated or purchased with proceeds from sponsors and vendors.
Another great part of the event is the "Secret Santa" giveaway. Millions of families are unable to provide for their loved ones during the holiday season. Secret Santa was created to help selected families through monetary donations (based on funding availability). Through this contribution assistance with their financial burden can help the these families can enjoy the spirit of Christmas
Continuing with last year’s Celebrity Santa theme, our first Celebrity Santa will be WACH Fox’s own Janet Parker.
