UGLY SWEATER HOLIDAY PARTY
Thursday, December 15, 2022
Join us for our 2nd Annual Chamber Ugly Sweater Holiday Party hosted by the ELEVATE Young Professional Council, in collaboration with our regional chamber partners on Thursday, December 15th at 5:30 PM in the backroom of Rodano’s. There will be food, fun, and, of course, an Ugly Sweater Contest!
As the need grows in our community, The Young Professional Councils hopes to fundraise for Valley Santa’s mission while providing an opportunity for attendees to network and learn more about the organization. We’ll have basket raffles and surprises peppered throughout the evening!
Valley Santa’s mission is to provide a toy at Christmas for children in Luzerne County who would not otherwise have the opportunity to receive gifts from Santa. The program was developed in 1984 through a community-wide effort and was based loosely on the program established in Boston through the Boston Globe called the Globe Santa. Various members of the community determined there was a need to provide toys to children at Christmas and the volunteers asked for community businesses to cooperate with the establishment of the program. In 1984 there were approximately 300 children received presents from Valley Santa. We are now serving 4000 children throughout Luzerne County.
