And every year, the HPFFA graciously accepts the invitation to join the party and purchase & wrap gifts for all the young patients in attendance. Helping Santa Claus this year were HPFFA members Josh Kreidl & Bill Kreidl as well as retired Hamilton Fire Fighters, Larry Rees & Dave Graham. This event is very special to HPFFA members and we are always honoured to be included in these festivities. Special thanks to the staff in the Burn Unit who coordinate the party and to the HPFFA elves, Samantha Kreidl & Nancy Burden for all their help!

The Celebration Game is a great opportunity to present the cheque to Food4Kids and a special thank you to tandia while playing an entertaining game of skills and talent in front of a school that benefits from the Food4Kids program!
