Tickets go on sale Thursday, November 14 for the annual Breakfast with Santa in Downtown Davis. This year’s event, sponsored by the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge, will be held on Saturday, December 14, at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second Street in Downtown Davis.
The 2013 Breakfast with Santa marks the eighth year that the event has been hosted by the Davis Odd Fellows.
This year, the breakfast will be served in the Upper Hall of the Odd Fellows Lodge, and Santa and his elves will be on hand to spend time with each child.
Seating is limited and tickets are not sold at the door. The ticket price is $9 per person – same as last year. Breakfast with Santa includes a delicious pancake, sausage and orange slice breakfast with the ever-popular cinna-bread from Woodstock’s Pizza, a goodie bag for each child and an opportunity to take a photo with Santa. The $9 per person charge applies to each adult and to each child. Tickets are available for purchase only at the following two Davis locations:
- The Avid Reader Active – 605 Second Street, Downtown Davis
- Common Grounds – 2171 Cowell Boulevard, South Davis
Tickets will go on sale at these two locations starting Thursday, November 14.
Due to the extreme popularity of this event, there will be three seatings and tickets may be purchased (subject to availability) for any of the seatings: First seating 8:00 a.m.; Second seating 9:30 a.m.; and Third seating 11:00 a.m. “We are delighted to present this fun event for the children and families of Davis. But only 120 tickets are available for each seating and they go really fast,” said event co-chairs Lea Rosenberg and Barbara Geisler. In past years, tickets sold out within two weeks.
Breakfast with Santa is sponsored by generous food donations from the Davis Food Coop, Woodstock’s Pizza, Mazzetta Foods and Kona Coast Food Products, and Puroast Low Acid Coffee.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) is a long-time fraternal order and service organization and traces its history in Yolo County back to 1870 when the Lodge was chartered. Currently, the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge has 208 members. The Odd Fellows Hall, located in Downtown Davis, has been in its current location on 2nd Street since 1955. The Odd Fellows will continue to make donations to the emancipated foster youth program (helping foster children as they transition to adulthood) and to aid foster children from funds and donations generated from the Breakfast with Santa.
Adults are encouraged to bring their own cameras to record their child’s moment with Santa and the Elves.
