This man portrays Santa Claus every year for charitable organizations and refuses any pay! When he’s totally outfitted, you would swear he’s the real deal..! His beard is real.

    Pat I think they could save on the outfit…he looks like the real deal just with the beard. Beautiful portrait and treatment!

  • He sure does! When I approached him, I said, “You look just like Santa Claus!” and he said, “I AM SANTA CLAUS!” He LOVES doing this…says it’s his way of giving back to the community! THANK YOU so much for the terrific support, my friend.
