WTIC’s Ray Dunaway had an opportunity to play Santa’s helper Sunday. Even though he might seem to be a natural, this actually was the first time Ray’s donned the beard and red suit.
At the Italian Club in New Britain, Ray was Santa for the group’s annual party for members’ children, and for children from several homeless shelters and Salvation Army housing.
Siracusa Moving and Storage of New Britain donated the toys for the event.
Discussing the experience with WTIC’s Scott Gray, Ray says children younger than 4 all cried when they were placed in Santa’s lap. Click below to hear Ray talking about his Santa experience. Click here to see more photos.
