2014 Santa Mike
"Santa Mike" Sturch returns to St. Vincent de Paul Center in 2014 for the 44th year of inspiring holiday events.
After a successful Homeless Outreach Luncheon and Resource Fair in November, "Santa Mike" and friends were busy planning a day of toy distribution for the children of St. Vincent's Child Development Program. Each child got a chance to sit on Santa's lap, take a photo, receive a gift, and whisper to Santa what they wanted on Christmas morning.
But the fun wasn't over yet. Later in the evening, St. Vincent welcomed its seniors for a night of dinner, dancing, deluxe gifts, and wine. A DJ kept the party going with fun holiday tunes and the seniors showed everyone how to really cut a rug.
In addition to the toys, parties, and homeless outreach, our hardworking, dedicated staff were able to enjoy a catered holiday appreciation dinner and gift card raffle as well. These events were all made possible by generous gifts to the Santa Mike fund.
