Santa Photos Popular Once Again!

By Thank You!

Thank you to Country Club Centre for their generous $4,621 donation! In 2017, Country Club Centre launched a Christmas campaign that put a new spin on the “Photo with Santa” that helps raise funds for local, not-for-profit organizations.

Ready Set Santa takes guests on a delightful journey through Santa’s Winter Garden, including photo opportunities with a 1930’s vintage sleigh, grazing reindeer and a six foot tall snowman complete with gently falling snow. Of course, children also spend some quality time with Santa along the way, discussing the important business of being a good person and Christmas list details. Guests took on the role of director and photographer for their family photos with their own photo devices, free of charge. Santa’s elves were also available on set to snap all your special moments on a DSLR camera and load them on to a keep sake USB for a charitable donation.

“Country Club Centre believes it is important to contribute and give back to our community. The Nanaimo Regional General Hospital affects everyone in the community at some point in their life and we think that is a very important reason to continue to support The Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation during our annual Christmas campaign. We are thrilled to know that our donation enables NDHF the ability to purchase critical medical equipment right here in Nanaimo. ” Gina Marwick, Marketing Director
