Hiring Santa Tracy for our office Christmas party was the best decision ever! He was authentic, very personable, jovial, looked and acted every bit the part! We will definitely be booking him for next year's party...and several of us will be booking him for our families' Christmas gatherings! Definitely an excellent Santa!!
We hired Santa Tracy the week prior to Thanksgiving and we are so glad we did. Santa Tracy was great with all the guests, especially taking time with the children. Very personable and has been the best Santa we've ever had. His look was perfect and his suite was beautiful. We would highly recommend Santa Tracy to anyone that is looking for the very best. Truly better than most I've seen on TV.
Response from Pastor Tracy Bennett:
Thank you so much for your review. I had a wonderful time and thank you for your booking for Christmas in July. Ho Ho Ho
We've hired Santa Tracy for a couple of events and have never been disappointed. He is very personable, warm and kind (and on time). Last year he used a fake beard, but it looked like very nice and fitted. If Santa Tracy is available this year, real beard or not, I'm sure we will agree to send him an offer. His fee is higher than some we interviewed, but have found that he is worth it.
Santa Tracy was a pleasure to work with. We had good, very good reviews and feedback from our staff and our customers. As we plan our upcoming events this year I’m sure we will be reaching out to Santa Tracy again. We can highly recommend

About Me: I have a stellar background, and am very well known in my church, community. I am a family man with three married children and four grand children. I'm also a Christian with a deep and genuine belief in the spirit of Christmas and what it truly means. I have been an ordained minister since 1997, have officiated many wedding and funerals. I have pastored at Lifepoint Church, and associate Pastor and Certified Lay Speaker at the United Methodist Church, and have help with several church plants and church growth. More about Him and less about me.
In 2005 I invested in a restaurant and catering company. Today, The Meeting Place Catering Services specializes in catering for most any event from 15 people to 1,000 people.
Prior to the recession of 2008-9 which brought my career to an end, my career had been the CEO of Approved Mortgage Services, a mortgage lending brokerage for 1st and 2nd mortgages throughout Georgia, and Superior Custom Homes, a new home construction company with developments from Cartersville, GA to Dalton GA. With such a vast background in real estate, in 2017 I decided to pool that knowledge in to the real estate arena as a Lic. Georgia Realtor.
In 2015 I thought it would be fun to play Santa for family and friends and over the course of 2015 -2017 that being if you will, choose me to become a trained professional Santa and I love it. If I could do nothing else, I'm Santa. I have been very blessed and successful with the events I've done in the past. Corporate, Birthdays and even a Pet event.
I am Santa Claus: and when I am not building or delivering toys to children of all ages, writing personal Real Santa Letters, or attending special events and functions; I spend much of my time in the woods, under bridges, or where ever the homeless men, women and children are, to feed, cloth, and give gifts. The Gift Ark and Cross Roads ministry is a 501c3 ministry that I founded approx 12 years ago for the purpose of giving back to communities and ensuring that families who are truly in need can have warm coats for the children, food and gifts at Christmas (through out the year)
My Professional Memberships/Associations
FORBS | Federal Order of Real Bearded Santas
IBRBS | International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas
Additional Booking Notes
Each event is so different. My hope is that the best equipment is avail for Santa so that each child is mesmerized and feels that their time with Santa is truly magical. Ideally this will require an ear piece and an invisible microphone for Santa that connects exclusively to Santa's Elf at hand, so mom or dad can prompt Santa on their child's name & interest. Also, Santa's Elf at hand will take notes of what the child tells Santa.
