"Santa's Christmas Spectacular" is being hosted at the Vanderburgh 4-H Center. It's a photoshoot event that will allow the public to take pictures with Santa, with the proceeds going to the Vanderburgh County 4-H.
With COVID-19 canceling some of the Vanderburgh 4-H Center's biggest fund-raising events like the 4-H Fair and the Frog Follies, officials hope the revenue generated by the photoshoot will help make up for some of those lost funds.
"With the lack of events going on and social distancing being mandated... We've lost all of our large income, which would be large events like Frog Follies, the Fair," explained Taylor Ostendorf-Bittner with the 4H Center. "With the loss of those, of course running a 207-acre-large non-for-profit organization is very very difficult."
Bittner says overall, the Vanderburgh 4-H Center has lost nearly $100,000 due to those large events being canceled.
The photoshoots with Santa, which will be held in the 4-H Center's Show Barn, are by appointment only and will cost $55 per session.
