Ryan House’s First Christmas in July Event Was a Success!
by Susan Kricun
When we got word that Santa was vacationing in Phoenix this summer, we just knew that we had to create a unique drive-thru event for our families featuring all things Christmas, including Santa and MORE! So, we planned our first ever Christmas in July event at Ryan House last month.
Each child and his/her sibling(s) received a few toys, a polaroid picture with Santa (who totally dressed the part as he showed up in his swim trunks and vacation attire), and yummy frozen treats!
“Speaking of toys, we had such an overwhelming response to our request for toy donations thanks to SO many of you in our community, and our friends at Jaburg Wilk and the Phoenix Fire Department who stopped by with a special delivery in a fire truck FILLED with toys!”
Boys Team Charity were there, too, as personal shoppers assisting families as they arrived. They worked so hard to make sure they got them what their hearts desired. We loved seeing everyone in person and look forward to seeing them again this December for our holiday shopping days. Only four more months but… who’s counting?!?
