Turns out Santa can boogie with the best of them – well, several Santa Claus can.
To the tune of Mariah Carey’s hit “All I Want For Christmas is You”, eleven Santas hit the intersection of Clayton and Lindbergh yesterday to dance as cars stopped at a traffic light. The fun was brought to the streets by DJ Reggie and the Hip Hop Mamas.
The group’s goal is to raise funds for various non-profit organizations while spreading the holiday cheer. They go to various places in St. Louis, such as sidewalks, events, and businesses. Last week, the Dancing Santa Claus hosted a toy drive to benefit Toys for Tots, outside the City Coffee House and the Creperie.
Last night, the Dancing Santas raised nearly $ 400 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Currently, the group has no fundraising planned, but will perform at the Central West End Winter Walk on December 11 at 1 p.m., while also visiting hospitals and children’s centers this holiday season.
