MD Anderson and the Galleria mall in Uptown Houston teamed up in December to host a festive breakfast with Santa for families with young children. Carolers sang holiday favorites, and Santa Claus read “’Twas the Night Before Christmas” to the delight of guests of all ages. The event, at the Little Galleria play area, included interactive children’s activities such as a build-your-own Legos table. Proceeds benefit the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital. For information about upcoming Little Galleria events, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-434-7084.
