The $15.00 donation will also benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina and can serve as an iconic keepsake in your home for years to come.

“The famous Waving Santa of Friendly Center has been an iconic Holiday staple in the community since 1958 and we are pleased to partner with Make-A-Wish this Holiday season and in helping others with a sentiment of history for families this Holiday season,” said Brad Rogers, Friendly Centers General Manager.

“We are so grateful for support from the communities we serve. Make-A-Wish relies solely on individual contributions to raise funds to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Because of the generous support from the community, we will be able to grant over 220 wishes this upcoming year,” said Stephanie Leeper, Marketing & Communications Manager for Make-A-Wish Western and Central North Carolina.
