A big thanks to everyone who joined Santa’s Angels at Havana Nights April 6. We broke every record. It was the biggest event ever in Friendship Park with more than 700 attendees. We raised a record amount of money. Thank you for making it happen. A special thanks to all our volunteers who really made a difference. We served over 2,100 dishes of food, over 2,300 beers and wine and 1,100 Havana rum drinks .We had perfect weather and a fantastic Latin /Cuban band that kept everyone on their feet. Thanks to all our sponsors, volunteers and the Beach Beacon, Thanks again from all of us at Santa’s Angels for your support.

All the proceeds from this event will help more than 500  needy children and families of Pinellas County obtain clothing, toys and food baskets. Santa’s Angels is celebrating its 32 years of bringing the magic of Christmas to over 11,000 children and families in Pinellas County.
