Vanessa Behan Events


Santa Express is a holiday retail store for all kids in our community. The proceeds from the store benefit the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery and operates during the holiday season between November 24th and December 23rd. The store is open to shoppers between the ages of 4 and 12, with gifts ranging in price from only $.50 to $8.

Over 950 Santa “Elf” volunteers are on hand throughout the month to help the children shop and wrap their gifts, while the “grownups” shop in the front of the store called “Vanessa’s Village”, a boutique of specialty items perfect for stocking stuffers or gifts for family and friends.
