Fort Valley, Georgia -Several local fans of the Macon-based charity Jay’s HOPE, which offers support to mid-state families battling childhood cancer, will come together next weekend to create a snowy, Christmas wonderland for about 100 lucky children.
The group plans to raise about $4000, and all proceeds will go directly to Jay’s HOPE.
A flyer about the event circulated on facebook over two weeks ago, and all available slots were quickly filled along with a waiting list that is still growing. Those lucky enough to secure a time slot will spend about an hour at Pineola Farms in Fort Valley. The activities will include real snow and a snowball fight, photographs with Santa in his toyshop, hot chocolate, a candy bar, fun props in a family photo booth, face painting, ornament painting, cookie decorating, letters to Santa, and a hayride.
Jay’s Hope families will have their turn with Santa first beginning at 9:00 a.m.
