Kneaders Bakery & Cafe is hosting its fifth annual Evening with Santa on Dec. 7 from 5-7 p.m. in all 59 locations across the country, including 19 in Arizona, to raise money for local children’s hospitals.
Between the hours of five and seven in the evening, Kneaders will serve its popular Chunky Cinnamon French Toast breakfast for dinner.
One hundred percent of the sales will be donated to area hospitals and organizations in the eight states Kneaders operates. At a local level, proceeds will go to Dignity Health Mercy Gilbert Medical Center in Phoenix, TMC for Children in Tucson and Amberly’s Place Family Advocacy Center in Yuma.
Santa will be on site to spread holiday cheer and take free photos with children. Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras as there will not be a formal photographer present.
The first Evening with Santa event originated when Kneaders founders Gary and Colleen Worthington wanted to create a special reason for families to come together.
At the event customers can pre-order holiday pies, gift baskets and catering.
