Mrs. and Mrs. Jim Steinmetz!
We would like to introduce all of you to a fabulous couple, Mr. and Mrs. Jim and Ann Steinmetz!
This amazing pair has been happily married for over 53 years. Jim had his first experience as Santa in 2004, while volunteering at an annual Christmas party. Since Jim made such a convincing Santa, he decided to use his newly discovered talent as a fundraising tool for Ann’s favorite charity, Breast Cancer Angels (BCA). Thus, Claus for a Cause was born. Jim and Ann attended an extensive training seminar held at the University of Southern California (USC) where they received their University of Santa Claus (USC) certificates. Ann made Santa and herself their new ensembles and compiled Christmas stories to read to children. In addition to fundraising events, the couple makes other special visits. The Children’s Ward at The City of Hope, Thanksgiving Day Breakfast for Orangewood Children’s Home and the Kirkwood Assisted Living Home were a few of their favorite stops this past year. However, The children’s party hosted at Boomers for the families of the women in treatment from BCA tops their list! Jim and Ann reside in Huntington Beach; have three children and eight grandchildren. For more information, please click here!
