Families had "Breakfast with Santa" in Beckley Saturday morning as part of a fundraiser for a local hospital.
The Beckley ARH Hospital hosted the breakfast in order to help raise money for its multi-million dollar renovation project.
Children had the opportunity to interact and take pictures with Santa. They also could get their faces painted and color pictures to be hung in the hospital.
Tickets were sold in advance and at the door. Clinical Nurse Manager Melanie Moten said the crowd was larger than anticipated. "We knew we were gonna have a lot of people because we had pre-sales, but
we are just astounded at the number that walked through the door," she said.
