Making Spirits Bright: SantaCon 2020 Party Packs
Jingle the bells and call all the reindeer! Santa will stop by your place early this year when you get on BBBS’ Good List and participate in SantaCon 2020 benefitting BBBS. In order to keep everyone safe, this year’s SantaCon is an in-home event!
Santa wants to stop the spread of COVID-19, so this year, instead of holding our customary Rainey Street celebration, we’re doing the next best thing – providing a party at home! Make spirits bright this holiday season with the purchase of a SantaCon Party Pack, and you can still have a great time while raising money to help at-risk kids get the mentors they need and deserve.
“Celebrating the season while helping a child, what’s not to love about that!?” said Lauren Portley, VP of Development at BBBS. “SantaCon’s focus hasn’t changed. It’s been a tough year, and kids need mentors more than ever. You can still make a difference in the life of a child by having a SantaCon party, only this year rather than gathering with a large crowd, the fun will be delivered directly to you.”
Break out the Santa suit or ugly Christmas sweater and turn your home into a party house by purchasing a SantaCon Party Pack. Choose between a Dripping Springs Vodka Party Pack or a Pala Vermentino Wine Party Pack. Each party-in-a-box comes with your choice of alcohol, savory and sweet snacks, BBBS-branded specialty items, plus plenty of Santa swag, all in a special, reusable insulated party bag. Party Packs are not only fun and festive, but 100% of proceeds from Party Pack sales will be used to provide mentoring relationships for more children in our community.
“SantaCon Austin, organized by BBBS, has been an important event in the Austin holiday scene for the past few years. Even though it is not possible to organize such a large in-person event this year, BBBS’ Big Impact Group still wanted to help BBBS implement the event in a way that would allow us to stay safe while still embracing the SantaCon spirit!! Given the ups and downs of this year, we hope that SantaCon will help us all take a step back and take some time to appreciate our family, friends and close relationships during the upcoming holiday season,” said Yagiz Yildiz, Fundraising Chair for BBBS’ Big Impact Group.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ BIG Impact Group (B.I.G.) has played an important role in assisting with the coordination of BBBS’ SantaCon event since its inception. The group is made up of Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and other volunteers who want to help BBBS. The group’s purpose is to support BBBS by engaging Bigs, recruiting volunteers, and raising funds. The B.I.G. is a diverse group of dedicated men and women who volunteer their time, talents, energy, and enthusiasm to support BBBS of Central Texas’ mission, and further the agency’s programs and impact.
Just like Santa’s elves, the B.I.G. will have SantaCon Party Packs ready for pick up or delivery on December 6th. Supplies are limited, so place your order now.
