About the Davis Odd Fellows
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 260 members – making it the largest Odd Fellows Lodges in California. 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 emancipated foster youth programs (helping foster children as they transition to adulthood) and to aid foster children from funds and donations generated from the Breakfast with Santa.
Major Sponsor of the event is The Stuart Foundation. Other sponsors of the event include: The Law Offices of Raquel Silva, Tim Ainsworth, Lea and Dave Rosenberg, Arun Sen, Bob Schelen, John Hillis Campus Child Care, Barbara and Zachary Wochok, Joyce Trujillo, Lisa and Jesse Salinas, Beth and Bob Dovi, County Supervisor Jim Provenza and County Supervisor Don Saylor. Because of these sponsors, the Odd Fellows Lodge is able to keep the price of tickets low.
While waiting in line to enter the Lodge for the Breakfast, children and their accompanying adults will be entertained with holiday songs and carols presented by the singing group “What Four.”
The Odd Fellows have arranged for a professional photographer to take photos of each child with Santa, however, adults are encouraged to bring their own cameras to record their child’s moments with Santa and the Elves.
