Virginia College in Chattanooga will host its second annual Holiday Fest with Santa on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the campus, 721 Eastgate Loop.
The event is free and open to the public, as the community is invited to join Virginia College for family-friendly activities and holiday cheer, including photos with Santa and writing thank you notes for military troops in partnership with Operation Gratitude. The event will feature refreshments, a tacky sweater contest, crafts, giveaways and more. Attendees 18 and older can enter to win prizes such as Amazon gift cards.
The event is part of Virginia College parent company Education Corporation of America’s national Holiday Fest events being held at 64 other Virginia College, Brightwood College and Brightwood Career Institute locations throughout 17 states.
“This event always serves to bring our community together as we celebrate the season,” says Campus President Dominick DeLorenzo. “We love hosting the community at our campus, from faculty and students to families and even Santa! Plus, through Operation Gratitude, we have the chance to share our thanks and spread the holiday cheer beyond our neighborhoods with the military serving our country."
The event will also allow attendees to explore the programs offered through Virginia College, including: business administration, culinary arts, medical assistant, medical billing and coding specialist, medical office specialist, pastry arts and pharmacy technician programs.
