Santa Geoff was so real! He brought magic to our school. He was so friendly, everybody loved him. He took the time to make every kid feel special. We are for sure having him again next year if we can!
I was looking to make this Christmas special for 3 little guys I work with. After much thinking I figured what would be more special than a personal visit from Santa?! I am so happy I found Santa Geoff, he is the REAL deal! From the moment we opened the door to the moment the boys were looking out the window hoping to see the reindeer flying was magical. Pros- on time and well organized
-learned the children's names and some of their likes before coming over.
-lit up the room with Santa magic
-children were drawn to him from the beginning
-takes his time/you don't feel rushed
Response from Santa Geoff:
Thank you so much! It was truly a pleasure! Hope to see you next year. Santa Geoff
Geoff was the best authentically looking Santa for our Holiday event! He arrived early to prepare for guests arriving on time for our Holiday Open House. His professionalism, sense of humor, and flexibility demonstrated throughout his time taking photos, passing out gifts and candy was noticed by all! Our company and guests were extremely pleased with Geoff and would recommend him as Santa for any event!!!
Response from Santa Geoff:
Thank you ZADRO! What a wonderful company with which to share Christmas cheer. Your organization of the event proved for a seamless party where I got to meet everyone and spread my jolly. Merry Christmas and thank you!

RESERVE SANTA GEOFF TODAY!
Get everyone together, before Santa enters. Timing is everything. You have scheduled Santa for a set amount of time, which begins the minute he arrives. Unless otherwise arranged, he will not stay longer than he has been booked for. Santa will call you when he is five minutes away from arriving. That's your cue to get everyone together, maybe to sing some Christmas carols, and to have someone go outside to meet Santa.
Have a sturdy chair for Santa to sit in. Folding chairs and low chairs are not good. Santa likes a chair that is sturdy and stable. A good straight-back dining chair, with no arms, works well. He should be able to sit comfortably and the chair needs to support him plus a child on each knee.
Have your cameras ready.
Have your gifts ready. He normally does not bring any candy canes or gifts with him. He will hand out your candy and gifts and can carry in one bag of presents for children or guests. They should be well labeled.
If there is a balance or payment due to Santa, place it inside a Christmas card or envelope. As Santa is departing, hand him the envelope and say, "Thank you Santa, and here is a Christmas card from all of us."
Place the chair near your Christmas tree or in a holiday setting, maybe in front of a fireplace with stockings hanging, or any festive type of backdrop.
Reserve a special parking place for Santa.
