Kiwanis Breakfast with Santa to be Held at New Location


Children in the East Orange County area can enjoy a special visit with Santa in early December. The Kiwanis Club of East Orange County will host its 16th annual holiday event “Breakfast with Santa” on Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 8:00-11:00am at a new location this year at Legacy Middle School (11398 Lake Underhill Road).

In addition to Santa, the event will feature a pancake and sausage breakfast with juice, coffee, and hot chocolate.  Students from local schools will provide entertainment.  For an additional charge, children can have their photo taken with Santa.

Tickets for the pancake breakfast are $5 for adults and free for children under 12.  The breakfast is hosted by over 100 student club members and is completely volunteer-driven.  All funds raised from this event are returned to the community through the club’s service leadership programs.


The Kiwanis Club of East Orange County currently sponsors 13 service leadership clubs (K-Kids in elementary schools, Builders Club in middle schools, Key Club in high schools, and Circle K Club at UCF) which teach students about leadership and serving others in their community.
