One week left for children to drop off letters
The deadline is fast approaching for little boys and girls to send their Christmas wishes to the North Pole. The Letters to Santa Project – sponsored by the City of Wichita, Cambridge Market and Starkey Inc. – ends at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 10. Drop-off mailboxes are located at Century II (Concert Hall entrance), CityArts, Old Cowtown Museum, the Mid-America All-Indian Center, Cambridge Market and Starkey, Inc. (see addresses below). Children who include a return address on their letters will receive a response from Santa Claus himself!
All kids who participate will automatically be entered into a gift giveaway. One grand prize winner will be selected to read his or her letter live on KAKE News at 11 a.m. with Jemelle Holopirek. 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.
The Letters to Santa Project was started in 2010 as a way for the City and its partners to spread a little holiday cheer. More than 1,500 letters were received in 2012.
