BANGOR – There’s nothing like enjoying some warm pancakes With the jolly man himself, Santa.
Dysarts held there annual “Breakfast With Santa” event to benefit pine tree camp, which is a camp for kids and adults with disabilities in Rome, Maine.
Kids and adults got into the holiday spirit at Dysarts while benefiting a great cause.
Development officer Tyler Cary said “A critical fund raiser for pin tree camp it’s a lead up event to the 45th annual snowmobile ride in to benefit pine tree camp Dysarts is the title sponsor of that event and they’re so gracious to do this particular fund raising event for us today. The “Breakfast With Santa” and all the proceeds go directly to pine tree camps camper ship fund.”
Pine tree camp has an open door policy they never turn anyone away due to their inability to pay for it.
“So all the money raised through this event and the snowmobile riding goes directly to the camper ship fund helping us keep that policy in place” said Cary.
Mary Dysart Hartt said “We’ve have a long term employee who’s son has always gone to pine tree camp and we have just fallen in love with the idea that every child should be able to go to camp.”
Kids were anxious waiting on line to tell Santa what they wanted.
William Langley said “I wanna ask for a snowboard…I’ve never done it before, but my friend said it was really fun.”
Santa gave out some candy canes and cookies to the kids.
“Every child I’m seeing has frosting all over their face so how much happier can you be then with frosting” said Hartt.
Last year they raised over $2,000 and are hoping to surpass that this year.
