Holiday spirit can be felt all around Etobicoke as Christmas is just over one month away. With the fall semester merely two weeks from its end, it’s time for Humber to celebrate another year with its Annual Staff and Children’s Holiday Party.
The party kicks off at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 24 in Humber’s L building. This is a popular event among faculty members and their families as records show previous turnouts have exceeded 100 guests – most being children.
The event is being organized by students in the Bachelor of Public Relations program at Humber as a means to develop their event management skills.
Victoria Lee is a Humber PR student and event planner who is in charge of ticket sales, website visuals and coat check. She teases about some of the activities available for children at the party. “There will be a craft station, cookie decorating station a, hockey room, a bouncy castle and a ball pit,” Lee says.
Guests can expect a delicious hot breakfast, with menu options including waffles, eggs, bacon, and juice.
And of course, a holiday party wouldn’t be complete without its special guest: Santa Claus – who will be stationed for photos and roaming the event to bring cheer. There’s even more to be expected: “A live band will also be present at the event playing music to get staff and their kids in a festive mood for the holidays,” Lee says.
The playlist for the day includes classic hits like Run Rudolph Run, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town and Wonderful Christmastime.
In response to Humber’s commitment to hosting initiatives that benefit its community, guests are being asked to bring a non-perishable food item. As an incentive to contribute, every non-perishable food item donated qualifies for a raffle ticket.
