We are extremely thankful to our sponsors, as it is their generosity and support that allows our events like this to take place.

We had a blast hosting our third annual holiday family event – Donuts with Santa – on Saturday, December 7th at the beautiful Venue at ALMAGRE! 2019’s event was sponsored by Colorado Springs Utilities and Colorado Springs Orthopaedic Group. Over 125 local families joined us as we spent a special day with Santa! Each session offered guests a smaller, more intimate event experience as they enjoyed sweet treats, hot cocoa, story time with an Elf, holiday crafts & activities, and a visit (and photo) with Santa!

The Venue

The Venue at ALMAGRE graciously opened the doors of their amazing event + wedding venue on a Saturday afternoon to host all the wonderful families in attendance. It was the perfect venue to celebrate the holidays – with handcrafted wood backdrops for our Photo with Santa area, lots of seating options, a warm industrial feel, holiday lights, and more!

We absolutely LOVE working with Life Photography by Melissa (she provided on-site professional photos with Santa; one photo/family was included in the tickets) and Faith Photography by Kati (our official Event Photographer, captured all the event happenings and fun on film for us to share with you)! Not only are they wonderful photographers, they’re so fun to be around!
