Bring the family, snap a photo with Santa, and fill up on fluffy pancakes, sausage, and orange juice or coffee. The 6th Annual Breakfast with Santa is proudly sponsored by German American Bank and The Country Station 92.5 WBKR. Children can write letters to Santa, plus Christmas coloring pages and crayons will be available.
“Santa and our team are so excited to see the kids again this year,” said Kyle Aud, German American Market President. “The German American Bank Ballroom will be decorated and ready for you and your family, so get your lists ready and we’ll see you soon!”
The breakfast will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

CHRISTMAS WISH FUNDRAISER
Christmas Wish will be on hand for the annual breakfast. We're thrilled to be included this year! You can stop by our booth to learn more about Christmas Wish. You can sign up to volunteer, donate toys, or drop off a monetary donation.
Because of efforts and community generosity, 1,940 needy families received Christmas last year. Over 8,000 children had presents under the tree. Over 50,000 gifts were handed out during the holiday season. If you're in need this holiday season or know someone who is, letter submissions are happening now.
CHRISTMAS WISH VOLUNTEERS ALWAYS NEEDED
Christmas Wish runs with a core group of volunteers who have supported the mission for 10 to 30 years. US Bank is a huge partner allowing employees to volunteer their time during the season. Over the years, many businesses have also jumped on board with “Giving Programs." There would be no Christmas Wish without the volunteers who devote their time.
Volunteers will be needed starting on Wednesday, November 15th this season. If individuals or businesses would like to volunteer, they can email ChrsitmasWish@wbkr.com.
We’ll once again be located at Towne Square North in Owensboro. In the former Shoe Stop location by Big Lots. Our “soft opening” will be on Monday, November 27th. Grand Opening Day will be on Monday, December 4th, 2023.
HOW TO DONATE TO CHRISTMAS WISH?
Why give to Christmas Wish? The program runs from around $500 to $800 annually. Everyone volunteers their time. We get the space, signage, etc. all donated. Restaurants feed the volunteers each day during the season. Your donations go to children who need it the most!
CHRISTMAS WISH MISSION
Since 1976 Christmas Wish has been “MAKING SURE EVERY CHILD IN THE TRI-STATE GETS A VISIT FROM SANTA”. You can make a huge difference in the lives of others and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas by giving back to those in need this holiday season.
As we get ready to celebrate our 47th Anniversary Season of Christmas, let's look back at the record-breaking 2022 season.
