Breakfast With Santa Kicks Off Rotary’s Festival Of Trees Today

The 1997 Festival of Trees kicks off today with the Santa’s Breakfast at the Spokane Valley Mall from 8 to 10 a.m.

The breakfast will be held in the food court, with fruit, donuts, granola bars and juice available for $3. Children will be able to visit with Santa, participate in fun activities and watch several entertainers, including a balloon artist.

Each child will receive a gift and door prizes will be given away.

Proceeds of the breakfast will benefit the Valley Center of Sharing, the Hugs to Health Daycare at Valley Hospital and Medical Center and the new Valley senior center and park at Mirabeau Point.

The event is sponsored by the Spokane Valley Rotary.
