Gift giveaway part of annual project to spread holiday cheer
Starting Friday, the City of Wichita, Cambridge Market and Starkey Inc. are once again teaming up with the North Pole to collect letters for Santa and give away early Christmas presents that include a guest appearance on a KAKE Channel 10 newscast and a ride on a Wichita fire truck. Now in its fifth year, the Letters to Santa Project is a way for the City and its partners to spread a little holiday cheer.
From Nov. 14 through Dec. 12, children ages 12 and under are invited to drop off their letters in special mailboxes at Century II, CityArts, Cowtown, the Mid-America All-Indian Center, Cambridge Market or Starkey, Inc. (see addresses below). Children must include their age and return address on their letter to receive a response from Santa Claus himself! No postage is necessary on the letters.
All kids who participate will be automatically entered in the gift giveaway. Two grand prize winners will be selected. One will read his or her letter live on KAKE News at 11 a.m. with Jemelle Holopirek; the other lucky child will take a ride on a City of Wichita fire truck.
Other prizes include a free youth art class at CityArts, family memberships to Cowtown and the Indian Center, a gift certificate for an upcoming performance at Century II and $50 in Cambridge Market Bucks.
