I didn’t have any idea how important being Santa Claus would become when I first received the phone call from UNC Children’s Hospital in 2005. At the time they needed a Santa and I had a short white beard. course, I told them I would help in any way I could and then, it hit me. If I was going to wear the red suit and portray one of the greatest legends of our time for these children…well, they deserved the very best Santa I could be.” Being the very best Santa Claus is exactly what Santa Steve set out to become. He read every book he could find on the subject of Santa and Christmas. He attended the oldest Santa schools in the nation and designed his suits and casual attire with a keen eye. No detail was too small to ignore. Santa Steve is not a Santa for all venues. He is a Santa for special clients and special events.
