8-year-old wins ride on Wichita fire truck

The City of Wichita’s “Letters to Santa” grand prize winner is eight-year-old Sheridan Bussard. She will receive a ride to her home on a Wichita fire truck. The home school student will begin her ride at 10 a.m. Friday at Wichita Fire Station No. 13, located at 3162 W. 42nd St. North. Media are invited to meet Bussard when she arrives at the fire station.

Bussard’s “Letter to Santa” was one of 500 dropped off at Century II, CityArts, the Mid-America All-Indian Center and Old Cowtown Museum in December. Every child who dropped off a letter received a response from Santa as well as an automatic entry into the City’s gift giveaway. Letter writers were picked at random to receive prizes. The project was the City’s way of spreading a little holiday cheer.

This is the second year the City of Wichita collected Letters to Santa. A complete list of gift winners and a sampling of children’s Santa letters can be found at wichita.gov under “Arts & Culture.”
