Lakeview Regional Medical Center, a campus of Tulane Medical Center, announces it will host the Youth Service Bureau's 4th annual “Your Santa Breakfast” on Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 9 am - noon. All children are invited to join in the fun, including hot breakfast, Christmas crafts, kiddie train rides, face painting, a showing of a special Christmas movie, a souvenir photo with Santa, and much more. Tickets to the event are $20 each for reserved seatings. Last photo slot reservation is 11:45 am. Parents are free, with the option to purchase breakfast for $5.00.

Proceeds support Youth Service Bureau's programming, including Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), which trains and supervises community volunteers who assist the court in determining the best interests of children who have experienced abuse and neglect. The breakfast will also fund the Truancy Assessment and Service Center (TASC), which provides resources and support for children in grades K-5 and their families to reduce truancy. TASC addresses the specific causes of the student's absences and works with families to provide education, advocacy, and referrals to community resources. TASC intervention can pave the way to improved academics and strengthened families.

“This year's breakfast with Santa is more than just making memories for children; it will provide Youth Service Bureau with funds to support its programming in our community,” said Hiral Patel, Lakeview Regional CEO. “As a Youth Service Bureau partner, we are committed to making this community a better place for everyone, especially our children.”

Sponsor packages are available to individuals or businesses from $100 to $1000. In addition, tickets may be purchased and donated to sponsor a child in need in St. Tammany Parish. To purchase tickets or to sponsor Your Santa Breakfast, visit YSBWorks.com/Santa.

The mission of the Youth Service Bureau is to provide advocacy, counseling, education, and intervention for at-risk youth and their families, helping them reach their full potential. Their programs have served St. Tammany and Washington Parishes since 1981.
