Breakfast with Santa. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Lodi/Hackensack present this great chance to get together with other community members for a holiday event to remember. The breakfast will be held on Sunday, December 1, 2013 from 9am to 12pm at the Elan event venue on Route 46. Advance tickets are just $12 per person and it’s $15 at the door, so go ahead and reserve early! Children under three are welcome to attend for free. There will be great prizes to win with both tricky tray and 50/50 raffles during the event, and of course, great food and great company with Santa!
