KVET Blue Santa Breakfast (12/07/2007)

Blue Santa in Austin benefits the children of the area that won’t have a Christmas as nice as most…..if they have a Christmas at all!

Of all the charities helping people at this time of year…..this is the one that speaks to my heart.  In fact, this year, this is my Christmas shopping except for my immediate family.  I really wanted to be at the breakfast and I’m lucky to have a boss that supports us when it comes to the things in our lives that are important.  (Thanks, Boss!!!)

The Broken Spoke has been hosting the breakfast for several years.  The only problem is that the club is so large and there is so much going on, I’m always in the wrong place to get good pictures.  In fact, this year I only got 4 snapshots.  But, I’m not complaining!!  All the wonderful people that came together for the cause raised over $83,000!!  And, one company had their own fund raisers and brought a trailer full of $11,000 worth of toys!

After this morning, I’m finally in the Christmas Spirit!!

 

KVET Blue Santa Breakfast (12/06/2006)

Last year at the Blue Santa Breakfast, I wanted to get a picture of Bob Cole and Sammy Alred from KVET.  But, I waited til just before leaving and the battery in my camera had died.  THIS year, they were the 1st ones I asked for a picture!!  Thanks guys, for helping with Blue Santa……and for the picture!

 

KVET Blue Santa Breakfast (12/06/2005)

KVET Radio in Austin, TX, hosts a breakfast every Christmas as a kick-off for the Blue Santa Toy Drive.  I’d always wanted to go, but it just didn’t work out.  This year, I asked my boss if I could come in a couple of hours late and attend.  Bless his heart…..he said ‘yes’!!  🙂

Now you would think that someone that takes as many pictures as I do…..that had been looking forward to this event since it was announced….would be prepared.  Well…..you would be wrong!  Seems I’d forgotten to charge my camera battery and after just 13 pictures, the camera died!  I had to charge it before I could even upload the pictures to see what I had gotten!

I promise……next year I’ll do better!!
