Santa in The Gardens

Santa In The Gardens is a fundraiser event for the Toys for Tots Foundation as well as the Make-A-Wish Foundation hosted every year at The Gardens at Gray Gables by the Jenks Family.

Since starting in 2010, Santa In The Gardens has been the largest Toys for Tots fundraiser event in the Triad, raising more toys than ever imagined. Since bringing in the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2011 we have also been able to grant a child's wish every year, which is a huge accomplishment.

Santa In The Gardens is open to the public. Children enjoy visiting with Santa and receive a free 4x6 photo of their visit. Children also enjoy themselves in our arts and crafts section where they can create Christmas ornaments for their trees, listen to Christmas stories read to them by Mrs. Claus, and play in bounce houses set up around the property. Free snacks and beverages are available to all who attend.

Admission: One toy to donate to the Toys for Tots Program. We have Marines on site each year to collect the toys.
