The Ellison Place is thrilled to share some incredible news with you all. For the past two years, Jim Wernig Chevrolet and Jim Wernig GMC have been proud sponsors of a heartwarming community event: “Photos with Santa.”  It’s been an amazing journey, with nearly 300 joyful kids joining us last year. 

But guess what? We’re taking it up a notch this year, and we can’t contain our excitement! This year, we’re moving the event to the stunning Ellison Place location! 

The Ellison Place is a grand venue with plenty of space for us to spread our wings. We’re not alone in this venture – we’re sharing the space with “The Christmas Shop, Vendor and Craft Show.” Get ready for a spectacular event that’s sure to bring holiday cheer to all! Here’s what you can expect:

 $1 entry fee per person / Max of $5 per family (unless you want to donate more): All proceeds will go to Toys for Tots as a donation!
Visit with Santa: Santa will be waiting to hear your holiday wishes and spread that magical Christmas spirit.
Get Professional Pictures Taken: Capture the precious moments with Santa, your kids, and loved ones. Our special photographer will be announced soon, so keep an eye out for that post!
