Santa pics help Langley charity

The jolly old elf is aiding a scholarship and a sponsored Christmas Bureau family.

Santa dropped by Langley on Friday and Saturday to help raise a little money for a local charity.

The man in the red suit was having his photo taken in the studio at 19985 68th Ave., to benefit the Bradley McPherson Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The fund, named the best non-profit in Langley in this year’s Langley Advance Best of the Best, helps students with ADD/ADHD further their education.

Bradley’s mom Susan Simning helped organize the event, with photography by Kim Loof of Live.Love.Laugh Photography.

All proceeds will be split between the scholarship fund and a family being sponsored for the Langley Christmas Bureau.

Everyone who attends for a photo with Santa is being asked to bring a non-perishable food item.

Photo packages start with a $9.99 donation for a matted photo.

The event began on Friday, and continues on Saturday, Nov. 25 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
