IT’S OFFICIAL! After almost a year of planning it’s finally happening. The TLC Foundation has received an invitation to attend Hell’s Kitchen in February for a taping of a show and dinner. We have chosen a very special boy who is battling cancer and is a fan of Chef Gordon Ramsey to attend this amazing event. Chef Gordon Ramsey’s team has been amazing to work with and has come through with his promise to fulfill this wish. It’s hard to comprehend that a small local charity like the TLC Foundation can make so many of these wonderful wishes come true no matter how many people tell you it’s imposable! Nothing is impossible if you truly believe in what you are doing. Hell’s Kitchen…here we come! Who knows, you might see me in Hell’s Kitchen after Chef Ramsey discovers what a great cook I am. If you do, please don’t turn the channel. It’s not every day that you can watch a dining guest of the show being thrown out for taking a wrong...

A Message from the TLC Foundation Words cannot express the gratitude and appreciation that I have for all the great people that have supported the TLC Foundation this past year. From the companies, individuals and other organizations that sent in donations that help us help kids not just at Christmas but throughout the year. To the thousands of people who visited us at Santa’s House in Victoria Park and helped us raise over $40,000 for our charity. To the hundreds of volunteers who helped with the Santa House operations and with the purchase and delivery of hundreds of gifts to kids this Christmas Eve, and to the firefighters and police officers who assisted me in delivering wishes to all the kids in the hospital this Christmas Eve…thank you from the bottom of my heart. We could not have done this without your support. Every year I receive many accolades and thanks from families that TLC supports. But TLC Foundation is only successful as a result of the hundreds of volunteers and donors that provide their time, effort and financial...

Last week someone broke into Santa’s House and stole all of my Christmas lights, Laser lights, extension cords, Christmas Decorations and some tools. Since then I have installed a security system. Last night someone stole my Laser Lights that were mounted on a pole outside of Santa’s House that were there to illuminate the beautiful Christmas tree beside the Santa House. So if anyone is looking for me from now until Dec 23 I will be living at Santa’s House. To the Grinch that tried to steal Christmas you can try to damper my spirits but Santa’s House no matter what you try to steel will never lose its Christmas...
