10 days to go before the Kid's Christmas Party!

This year, it looks as if we will be serving more than 350 kids, and 150 of their moms, their grandmas, and some of their papas...

The generosity of a bunch of you really nice readers has kept us even so far.

This week we bought the 500 wieners, the 500 each plates, cups, napkins, and 140 liters of Coca Cola.

We were advised that the extra seating we need this year will take three trucks instead of last year's two, and that kicks up the cost quite a bit there.

The good deal that we got buying bags of potato chips last year, has faded, and we are facing $125 to buy them in the supermarkets...quite a jump from last year.

And...most of our waiters from last year have received salary increases, so to keep them even for their work day with us, our costs of increased there, too.

So...the upshot of all of this, is that we have dipped pretty severely into the red.

If you have been wondering where a little good will charity might best be used, please consider sending some down here.  A few bucks from you will make a huge improvement in our ability to keep the party going and the kid's smiles growing!

We are going to post some photos from last year's party showing the waiters in action, and just a portion of the crowd they serve...

You can participate easily, by sending some dough to our PayPal account bobnrox@gmail.com  

 

 Here you can see moms with babies waiting to get a visit with Santa and the all important photo of their child for this year.

The guys use every tray they can find to bring out the hot dogs, other waiters add the bag of potato chips, and others fill up the Coca Cola glasses.

 

As usual, Roxanne and I and all the the folks at the Kid's Christmas Party, thank you for your support!
