What a Wonderful Year | Donuts with Santa 2019

It brings us so much joy to host events where people leave with big smiles on their faces, having experienced something truly unique. We so love being able to end the year with one of our favorite events – Donuts with Santa! It’s fun for us to provide you with a smaller and more intimate experience with Santa, including time to visit Mrs. Claus, the Snow Queen and Snow Princess, make crafts, and eat donuts – of course! We hope you enjoyed the event – we are already excited for next year!

Thanks to our Title Sponsors for helping us make this event a reality!

Metropolitan Pediatric Dental Associates has been providing quality pediatric dental care for infants, children, and adolescents in the Twin Cities since 1965. The pediatric dentists are all members of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and are Board Certified through the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Beyond dental school, they have also completed an additional two-year pediatric residency, so they are experts in treating problems associated with children’s teeth, such as issues caused by pacifier use, thumb sucking, nursing, baby bottles, and juice consumption. The pediatric dentists have also studied tooth eruption and spacing issues which may arise in the mixed dentition of children and they offer limited and interceptive orthodontic care right in their offices. Metropolitan Pediatric Dental Associates recognizes that kids can be shy, silly, nervous, or afraid during their dental appointments and they know how to handle these fears, emotions, and actions with extra patience and understanding. For patients who have special healthcare needs or for little ones who require a large amount of treatment, Metropolitan Pediatric Dental Associates offers hospital dentistry, as well as in-office general anesthesia. Visit one of their 4 kid-friendly locations or online at MetroPediatricDental.com.

The Urgency Room is staffed with board-certified ER physicians specializing in emergency medicine. We offer more care options than a typical urgent care and a fraction of the wait you would find in your average emergency room. From concussions and broken bones, to abdominal pain and high fevers, The Urgency Room can handle it all. Convenient Hours: 8am -10pm, 365 days a year in Eagan, Vadnais Heights, Woodbury.

Breck is an Episcopal, coeducational, college-preparatory day school enrolling students of diverse backgrounds in grades preschool through twelve. Breck is located on a 52-acre campus in Golden Valley, just minutes from downtown Minneapolis. We are a community of high-achieving, motivated students and teachers focused on intellectual inquiry, engagement, and bridging education research with classroom practice. We live our Episcopal roots through a commitment to peace and justice, inquiry and reason, and service to the common good.
