Click play below to listen to KMZU’s Ashley Johnson speak with Odessa Optimist Club Member Tahnami Gittinger:
The Odessa Optimist Club is hosting their 3rd annual free Christmas Eve Breakfast with Santa. “We would like for everybody to come out in the morning,” Gittinger said, “The Odessa Optimist Club will feed you and the kiddos from infant to 12 years old can pick out a toy.”
The best part of the morning is just watching the excitement in the kids. “Oh they just love it, ” exclaimed Gittinger, “I love to see the smiles on their face especially when they see something that they’ve asked Santa for.”
The free biscuit and gravy breakfast will begin at 9 a.m. at the New Horizon Presbyterian Church just south of Odessa on highway 131. Santa will also be available to visit with children one last time before making his Christmas trip.
