Pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus: December 5th
As Brian and I dreamt up Incendia, one of the things we wanted was a place where we could grow a community and do a variety events which supported that community. From fundraisers to children’s events to parties to Financial Peace University, we’ve used this space for some cool stuff throughout the years. Truth be told, Many of our community events haven’t even had anything to do with CrossFit! Pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus is one of those non-CrossFit, community-driven events that we are honored to take part in every year.
Pictures with Santa & Mrs. Claus is an event that was created by The Laughton Team in 2014. Together with other corporate sponsors, we host a FREE photo event with our very own Santa and Mrs. Claus. It’s truly a team effort:
- The Laughton Team provides Santa & Mrs. Claus and the SNOW
- Why Not Capture It Photography provides professional photos
- Highway 85 Creative provides the backdrop
- Liquis Design provides graphic design and media
- CrossFit Incendia provides the venue, Christmas crafts and bounce house
- The Incendians provide the baked goods
This year we are adding in a charitable toy drive element to the event and asking that each child participant bring one unwrapped toy for the Mesquite Santa Toy Drive Benefitting Arlington Elementary School. The Mequite Santa was a friend of ours from Arlington, AZ. Sam Richardson was an old biker who did toy runs in the 70s and 80s to provide toys to kids who couldn’t afford them. Sam decorated a mesquite tree near his home every year and earned the name “Mequite Santa” as a result. He died last year and we plan to help carry on his tradition for years to come.
All Incendian families are invited to join us for this fun, family-friendly event. You do need to sign up in advance to reserve your time with Santa. Please click here to sign up.
