Child cancer patients to visit 'North Pole'

Young cancer patients from Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto and two other Bay Area hospitals will get to visit the North Pole on Saturday, thanks to the Cops Care Cancer Foundation.

The North Pole, in this case, will be a hanger at Moffett Field in Mountain View used by the San Jose Police Department.

The event will feature food, entertainment, games and gifts for the kids and their families.

A highlight of the day will be arrival of Santa in a police helicopter.

The event will be held from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.

I volunteered at this event and was amazed by the efforts of the Cops Care Cancer Foundation directors and Police staff. The smiles on the children's faces made my year. This is a true charity event so you can count on me to donate and volunteer next year. Good work.
