The second annual “Sugar for Reindeer” event to promote awareness and offer support to children with Type I Diabetes and The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), will be held Dec. 8, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at River City Restaurant in Wheeling.

According to event organizer Lorri Schodzinski, Santa is scheduled to fly in directly from the North Pole to meet with children and their families in a private and relaxed setting. “Santa will be listening to wish lists, offering words of encouragement and reminding children about the true spirit of Christmas,” said Schodzinski. “I encourage parents to bring their cameras and capture their child’s reaction to Santa in his “festive holiday office” without any distractions.”

At the end of each individualized session, Santa will give each child a “magic dust” made of glitter, sugar and oats to leave out for the reindeer on Christmas Eve in anticipation of his pending arrival.
