Young Professionals Hosting Free Pictures with Santa

On the first weekend of December the Young Professionals of Lodi (YPL) will hold their annual free pictures with Santa at the Woolworth building. Everything at the event is free. Two professional photographers donate their time for the pictures and this year those photographers are Kelly Marie Photography and KCM photography. After your kiddo takes their picture with Santa, you get a special link to the website where you can download the photos. The YPL will also host their annual “Write a Letter to Santa” table and are hoping to select at least 2 local families for Santa to deliver presents to based off their wishlists. This fun day is made possible thanks to the YPL’s Casino Night fundraiser, which provides all the funds to allow the YPL to host the crafts and buy the presents for the families.


“This will be my 4th year being involved with this event and it is by far my favorite of the year for the Young Professionals.” shared one of the YPL steering committee members. “I love seeing the looks, and sometimes screams, on the kids' faces when they see Santa and get to tell him what they want for Christmas. It is even more touching that Santa donates his time not only for the weekend of the event but also carves out time to help us hand deliver the presents from the ‘North Pole’ directly to the families. A lot of these families don't even have a Christmas tree or any decorations and it is a joy to witness how excited these kids are to see Santa in their neighborhood.”
