ST. PETERSBURG – Hundreds of excitable children and hungry moms and dads came out to enjoy the 35th annual St. Petersburg Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Breakfast with Santa holiday treat held at Pinellas Technical College last Saturday.
As some tots made arts and crafts, constructed Christmas cards, got their faces painted and nails polished, others decorated cookies and cupcakes before devouring them. Parents were happy to sit back and watch their young ones burn off some of the excess energy from all the sweets that were gobbled down.
This year’s chairperson, Tonya Mitchell, said the sisters started preparing for the event back in October. With a team of 13 people, she assigned tasks to the sorors she knew could get the job done.
“I put people in the gifts that they are good at,” said Mitchell, who pledge on the campus of Bethune-Cookman College back in 1993.
