Mainstreet group seeks Santa House sponsors

Mainstreet Steamboat Springs is seeking sponsors for the Santa House and Santa for Steamboat during the holiday season. The Santa House will be moved to the courthouse lawn in time for the Light Up the Night event held every year on the Friday after Thanks­giving. Santa will be available that evening from 6 p.m. In addition, if we raise the funds, Santa will be available to receive Christmas requests from good little children from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday from Thanksgiving until the Saturday before Christmas. If you are in­­terested in helping to raise the $1,000 needed to sponsor Santa and his house, donations in any amount would be appreciated. All sponsors giving more than $250 will be acknowledged at the Santa House and in a thank you ad after the Merry Mainstreet event.
