I am participating for the first time in Santa Night this year, an incredible local community fundraiser supporting those in need during the Holiday Season. I’ll be donning my Elf suit and boarding Santa’s Sleigh. I need to raise $150 to board the bus. Please help me reach this fundraising goal by donating any amount at all. It all adds up so nothing is too small!

After boarding the Sleigh, the Elves are dropped off at area restaurants to sing Christmas carols until the patrons pay us to go away by putting money in our Elf hats. In addition to the fundraising goal, more money is raised through our off-key singing. Since I have no ability to sing, I should be able to raise a lot of money to "go away!"

Please consider supporting Santa Night and me; some $15,000-20,000 is raised each year and goes directly to local children, families, and individuals in need at the Holiday Season. The big event happens on December 8.

Happy Holidays!

Since 1998 Santa Night Burlington has been helping organizations, people and even animals throughout the greater Chittenden County area. Each year our reach has grown to include many different Non-Profits, families and individuals.

The money we raise has helped families to stay in their homes, put food on a table, provided young children with gifts and parents with the gift of knowing there is someone who is there to lend a helping hand, expecting nothing in return.

We have provided help for the end of life care for some who were terminal, helped to ease the pain for those needing financial assistance with travel costs in order to save a child, and have anonymously paid Vet bills to keep a family member from being euthanized simply due to lack of money.

There are so many wonderful individuals who just needed someone to reach out and make a difference during a time of need. We are very happy Santa Night could be there to help.

Through the generous support from all those who have participated, made a donation, or opened your doors to allow us a place to entertain your customers and spread our Holiday Spirit. Santa Night has been able to make a significant difference in the lives of thousands.
