Santa Claus arrived early Dec. 7 for a crowd of delighted Florida City small fry and families at the Kendall Village Civic Pavilion, thanks to Kendall Federation of Homeowners Association (KFHA) volunteers.
With a bag of goodies tucked under their arms, Farm Share kids snacked on pizza and cookies while enjoying upbeat Christmas songs performed by the John A. Ferguson Senior High
“Lady Falcons” chorus. Then Santa distributed gifts to each and announced 20 raffle prizes including a boy’s bicycle and a Kindle Fire HD tablet as grand prize award. Key donors included Mercedes Benz of Coral Gables, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco, First National Bank of South Florida, Miami-Dade Police Hammocks District, Farm Share, Amelia Toural, Dan Cowan, Steve’s Pizza, and McDonald’s.
Teacher Carmen Krueger’s school media room also received a set of books, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
Michael Rosenberg, Libby Perez and Iliana Petisco headed the KFHA team that included Nancy Rosenberg, Adolfo Perez and family, Joe Petisco and family, Miles and Lina Moss, Larry and Pam Kaplan, Jane and Bill Walker, Margaret Depass, Lee Zimmerman, Elna Epperson, Maggie Marrero, Lourdes Bravo, and Roderick Silva and family.
