Cookies & Milk with Santa

Santa is making a special appearance at Shannon Women's & Children's Hospital on Saturday, December 14, to enjoy cookies and milk.

Cookies & Milk with Santa is an annual event hosted by CMN volunteers that gives area families a unique opportunity to spend some time with Santa and receive a special souvenir photo while feasting on delicious cookies and milk.

The event will be Saturday, December 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Tickets are now available. Parents can reserve a specific time when purchasing tickets for their children. Tickets are $15 per child (includes cookies, milk and digital photo) and can be purchased from the CMN office by calling 325.481.6160.

"Members of the community and employees of our hospital look forward to Cookies & Milk all year long," said Tammy Van Stockum, a CMN volunteer who has helped coordinate this event for several years. "We have had a great response and we hope to put a little more Christmas cheer into the holidays for children of all ages within the community."

Funds generated during the event will serve the 16,000 children treated annually at Shannon. Like all CMNH fundraisers, 100 percent of funds raised help create miracles by funding needed medical equipment, training and therapy programs for children treated at Shannon Medical Center.
