Happy holidays Sonoma! With Thanksgiving so late this year, it does feel like we have been hurled right into the Christmas season, doesn’t it?
Last weekend we had our annual Santa Paws at the Sonoma Community Center and it was fabulous. More than 70 dogs (and cats) came to get their picture taken with the man himself who started the day out complete with little elven sidekicks. The elves had to take their leave and get busy making toys, but Santa stayed and kept his holly jolly going through chihuahuas, bulldogs, king charles spaniels, dobermans and some very confused cats. What a blessing we are to have such a Santa. Big love out to our own board treasurer (aka Santa), Joe Orlando.
And a very special thanks to Scandia Bakery and Basque Boulangerie who donated some very delicious holiday treats for all our guests.
This Sunday, Dec. 8, our holiday fundraiser, Miracle on 8th Street at The Lodge at Sonoma, is going to be a blast. Stephan Stubbins and Brooke Tansley from Transcendence Theatre will be honoring us with a special holiday performance.
The food will be out of this world scrumptious with beef tenderloin, sea bass or vegetarian strudel as entree selections finished with a chocolate bread pudding.
