Santa and an entourage of elves and Mrs. Claus are available to attend private parties, personal visits with children, office parties and community events through the annual Rent-A-Santa program sponsored by Zonta Club of the Santa Clarita Valley... Cost is $100 per hour or $150 for two hours and early reservations are recommended, especially for the most popular few weekends before Christmas. Live music with a professional keyboard musician also can be arranged. Proceeds help to support Zonta’s local and international programs to advance the status of women. Local residents or organizations interested in reserving a visit from Santa, or prospective Santas interested in volunteering their time, can call Barbara Stearns-Cochran at (661) 251-1352 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
