All the children told Santa they had been good boys and girls, when they each sat on Santa's lap at the annual Audi Reno Tahoe fundraiser to benefit the Washoe CASA Foundation. Gift cards and cash were accepted as parents, grandparents, CASA Volunteers, children and friends ate sweets, drank chocolate milk, made reindeer ornaments and had their faces painted. Santa and Mrs. Claus made sure everyone had a goodie bag and treats to take home. Ana (from Frozen) helped Santa coax the timid children to whisper a Christmas wish. It was cold outside, but warm and hospitable in the Audi Reno Tahoe showroom as pictures were taken, families visited and everyone partook in the holiday spirit. Thank you Audi Reno Tahoe for hosting such a fun and wonderful fundraising event!
