Charity Weekend

catch of the day fish (2)A couple of weeks ago, we heralded the arrival of the Christmas Village in Baltimore. The charming, European-style Christmas hub has been a welcome addition to our city this season—bringing us fabulous shopping, delicious food, entertainment, and enough good cheer and holiday spirit to last us until next December. And now, they’re going even further in that spirit by hosting a weekend (this weekend) of charitable events to help make sure that Santa is able to visit every child in Baltimore this year.

The weekend’s events will include a performance from JoeyDCares Rock Orchestra, among others, and the opportunity for visitors to purchase heart-shaped ornaments to benefit Santa Claus Anonymous. Santa Claus Anonymous is not, in fact, a meeting for recovering Santas, but a local, largely volunteer-based organization that raises awareness and money in order to provide gift certificates for families who are then able to purchase Christmas presents for their children at participating merchants in Baltimore. When you purchase a $4 ornament to benefit Santa Claus Anonymous, you get to write a Christmas wish on it, which will hang on the Wish Tree. And if all goes as planned, someone might just grant those wishes, too.
