Kneaders Bakery & Café’s annual Evening with Santa is right around the corner. The annual occasion will take place at Kneaders’ locations on December 11 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. During the event, 100 percent of proceeds from the sale of French toast will be donated to Primary Children’s Hospital. Kneaders will host Santa Claus for children of all ages to visit.
Guests of Kneaders Bakery & Café, typically, can only order their famous Chunky Cinnamon French toast until 11:00 a.m. Exclusively on December 11, patrons will be able to purchase the meal during the two-hour event to support the local children’s hospital. On the one-day only Evening with Santa event, Kneaders’ guests have the opportunity to enjoy one of its most popular menu items while spreading joy to children and families in need throughout the local community.
“Serving the local community is important to us,” says James Worthington, CEO, Kneaders. “As an organization, Kneaders’ employees and franchise owners see it as our responsibility to contribute to and strengthen our local communities. This is something that we take to heart. Christmas is the season of giving and we’re happy to give to hospitals that are doing great work in each of our communities all year long.”
All of Kneaders 31 locations will be participating in the one-day event. Each location will be raising money for the children’s hospital in their local communities.
Primary Children’s Hospital is recognized as one of the top children’s hospitals in the country. For over 90 years, the physicians and staff have been committed to providing the best care to children and their families throughout Utah and surrounding states.
