Lemont Junior Woman's Club hosts benefit breakfast with Santa at Cog Hill

LEMONT – Mr. and Mrs. Claus were in attendance at the Lemont Junior Woman’s Club’s Benefit Breakfast with Santa on Dec. 14 at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club.

In addition to the buffet-style breakfast, Santa was there to listen to children’s Christmas wishes. Mrs. Claus told stories and provided crafts.

A magician gave tableside performances during the meal and horse-drawn sleigh rides were offered outside.

Each family was asked to bring an unwrapped toy to donate to the Jeff Anderson Children’s Foundation in memory of Earl Anderson’s son. Anderson, who has been portraying Santa for more than 40 years, will deliver the gifts to children in area hospitals.
