The eighth annual Photos with Santa and Holiday Boutique from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, will also promote the annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Drive at the Smittcamp Alumni House (2625 E. Matoian Way) at Fresno State.

Presented by the Fresno State Alumni Association, the holiday event features photo opportunities with Santa Claus along with Fresno State mascots Victor E. Bulldog III and TimeOut. Guests are invited to capture their special moments with their personal cameras. About 20 boutique vendors will also be in attendance for guests to complete their holiday shopping.

For the Toys for Tots drive, participants are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy that will be distributed to less fortunate children throughout the holidays.

“The Photos with Santa event is a wonderful opportunity for the public to assist less fortunate children within our community, while adding some Fresno State spirit to their holiday season,” said Jacqui Glasener, executive director of the Fresno State Alumni Association.

This event is free to the public, and parking on campus is also free on weekends.

Fresno State Alumni Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to uniting and advancing the interests and traditions of alumni and friends, and providing scholarship opportunities.
