Breakfast with Santa

Santa Claus normally travels by a reindeer-pulled sleigh, but when he comes to Long Beach, he bids farewell to Rudolph and companions at the North Pole, opting for a yacht instead. 
 
The Annual “Breakfast with Santa” at Parkers’ Lighthouse invites families from the community to witness Santa’s stylish arrival and share their Christmas wish lists. 
 
During this event, Parkers’ Lighthouse staff generously volunteer their time to support a special cause. This exclusive gathering marks the one day each year that Parkers’ Lighthouse serves breakfast, with all proceeds benefitting the Cherese Mari Laulhere Child Life Program at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach.
 
Why? To bring holiday joy to the Long Beach community and support children hospitalized during the holiday season, Parkers’ Lighthouse is celebrating its 17th year of hosting “Breakfast with Santa.” 
 
This event generates funds for the Child Life Program at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach. Additionally, Parkers’ Lighthouse gathers unwrapped gifts to help brighten the spirit of patients who are hospitalized on Christmas Day.
 
The Cherese Mari Laulhere Child Life Program at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach was developed to help make the hospital experience a more positive one for children of all ages. 
 
Child Life Specialists help to cultivate an environment for patients and families that is fun, engaging and child friendly – especially during the holiday season. It’s through generous gifts from the community that Child Life Specialists can continue providing exciting toys and gifts to children to help make hospitalization easier.
