HomeA Christmas to Remember


For over 27 years, The Sertoma Clubs of Springfield have given the children of the Boys & Girls Clubs the hope of a brighter holiday season. We purchase gifts for 100 children, selected by the staff of the Boys & Girls Clubs. These children, which represent the eight Springfield Boys & Girls Club units, range from 6 to 12 years of age and are our guests at the Glendalough Ballroom inside the Double Tree Hotel for their special party. We have a traditional Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings followed by the children singing carols and reading of The Night Before Christmas. As always, we will have our “Special Guest” make his annual appearance to deliver gifts to the children. This annual event gives
a warm feeling among our Heart of the Ozarks members and the children served.

Find out how to sponsor a child's involvement here.


This is made possible because of people with hearts of gold. Your generosity and attendance make this a special time for these children and let them truly have a Christmas to Remember.

Join us in sponsoring a child for a very special evening to enable them to feel extra special on this night. All Sertoma club members and their friends are invited to participate in this event. The cost will be $100 to sponsor a child, which includes dinner for two adults and a chance to meet some very special young people. If you choose, you may sponsor more than one child, purchase an entire table for eight for $400 which sponsors four children, or make a donation to the program in the event you cannot attend. 

Please contact the Sertoma Office at 417.863.1231 if you are interested in helping with this special event.
