SantaCon STA

What is it? SantaCon. It’s a convention of Santas – groups of men & women dressed as Santa – pub crawling for a cause. All funds raised will be donated to The Betty Griffin Center, who offer protection and services for victims of Domestic Violence and their minor children and/or victims of Sexual Assault and their families in St. Johns County, FL.

What do you get? By purchasing your ticket, you will receive your SantaCon STA pin at event check-in. This identifies you as a charitable Santa and allows you to enjoy the perks of being on Santa’s Nice List (aka drink specials at the participating bars). Don’t be a Grinch – it’s for a good cause.
