More than 300 people packed the Boys and Girls Club in Gig Harbor on Saturday morning as part of PenMet Parks and the Peninsula Athletic Association’s Breakfast with Santa event.
Families got the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season and have their pictures taken with Santa. The Gig Harbor Kiwanis also provided a pancake breakfast.
PenMet Parks executive director Terry Lee greeted guests on arrival and directed them to the food and play areas. Santa made a special appearance, and handed out special gifts straight from the North Pole.
Games included ring toss and puzzles.
“Crafts were abundant, making your own place mat was a big hit and will be a holiday treat for years to come,” said PenMet Parks’ Chuck Cuzzetto. “You could even write your own letter to Santa and have it mailed straight to the North Pole.”
Families from all over the peninsula area were able to enjoy one of the great treats of the season with all proceeds benefiting the PenMet Scholarship foundation.
Cuzzetto made a point of thanking all the wonderful teen volunteers who were on hand to pitch in, as well as and the Gig Harbor Kiwanis and PenMet Parks with PAA.
