Ho! Ho! Ho, Gilroy! As the holiday spirit takes a hold of our town, I am overjoyed to announce the upcoming “Santa to the Rescue” extravaganza! This special event is all about spreading warmth and festive cheer for families in need. Once again, it is my honor to don that special hat and beard that transforms your Councilmember Tovar into “Santa” for this fun-filled event!

Join us this Saturday, Dec. 9 from 2-4pm, as Gilroy’s downtown pop-up park is transformed into a beautiful Winter Wonderland! “Santa to the Rescue” event promises an afternoon filled with gifts for families in need, pictures with Santa, delicious food and treats, live holiday music, and an abundance of fun for the entire community.

This year’s Christmas Gift Giveaway is shaping up to be Santa’s grandest event yet, so I am excited to extend a warm welcome to everyone in the community to participate in the festivities. It’s an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful difference and share the warmth of the season with those who need it most.

Community Sponsors Making It Happen: Santa’s mission wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support from our community sponsors. A heartfelt thank you to the Gilroy Fire Department, Gilroy Gardens, Mt. Madonna YMCA, Buffalo Wild Wings, Tempo Kitchen & Bar, Savvy’s Downtown Sweets, and DJ Mike for helping to make our “Santa to the Rescue” event a success!

No matter if you are volunteering your time, donating a gift or just coming by to share in the festivities we hope to see all of you at this fun-filled day of holiday joy! Together, we can make a difference for families in need and make this holiday season the most wonderful time of the year for our community!
