Kentucky is Big Blue Nation and Santa Bill becomes the Big Blue Santa when needed. From events like UK Game appearances to famously-recognized locations across the Bluegrass state, Santa shows up in a rich blue velvety suit, bringing a special magic to children and adults alike.
Look for him this season on the UK Alumni page!
Big Blue Santa
The Breakfast began in 2009 as an employee only event for the Embassy Suites in Lexington, Kentucky. In 2011, the decision was made to make it a public event with the 100% of the proceeds being donated to Daniel’s Care. Daniel’s Care is the children’s division of Hospice of the Bluegrass. The Embassy Suites donates all food, labor and venue site. A Silent Auction was added in 2012, and in 2016 a total of $6100 was raised for Thumbs UP for Lane.
Santa’s Scarves will be a non-profit, community service to provide the warmth of scarves to those in need. Potential recipients will include Veteran’s hospitals / homes, nursing homes, homeless shelters and children’s hospitals to name a few. Currently this service is in the beginning stages with hopes of being totally operational by Winter 2016.
