Breakfast with Santa 2018 - at Harborside Seafood & Italian Restaurant - sees huge turnout to benefit Miss Ruby's Kids
Even the cancellation of this year's Christmas parade couldn't damper the children's spirit as they walked into Harborside Seafood and Italian restaurant to see and eat breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Clause.
The annual event benefits Miss Ruby's Kids, a nonprofit group enabling vulnerable families and caregivers to inspire a passion for learning in their children. They help prepare parents to be their child’s first, best teacher and support both parents and child throughout the child’s school career.
The number of disadvantaged families and “at risk” children in Georgetown County far exceeds the resources and the reach of Miss Ruby’s Kids. Rather than despair, however, we have taken this condition as a challenge. Our hope and our goal are to increase the number of children and families served by our Home Visitors each year. We can only do this by broadening support for our program throughout the community.
And today's event is just one such way of broadening that support.
Turnout was heavy and all the people who attended were wearing festive smiles and joyful patience as the children waited in line to see Santa and tell him their wishes!
Owner and Chef Christopher Mitchel and his staff continuously outdo themselves with each event. The breakfast, consisting of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, hot chocolate with marshmallows and apple and orange juice, did not disappoint.
We hope you enjoy the photos from this year's Breakfast with Santa and ask you consider donating to Miss Ruby's Kids this Christmas.
