Wrapping Party

In 2015, we started having wrapping parties. The entire community is invited to come together to wrap the donated gifts and to celebrate the magic of Christmas. With help from several local community sponsors, there is plenty of FREE food, FREE drinks, and music for the entire family. We even have a face painter and a visit from Santa. This is a FREE event open to everyone and is a great opportunity to show kids about the importance of giving back. In 2018 more than 600 people came together to wrap those gifts…over 2400 of them! Talk about the season of giving!

 

Why our wrapping party is so special

Wrapping Party Wrappers

Last year we had over 500 amazing volunteers who come out to wrap the donated gifts! Friends, families, coworkers, and teammates sign up together to join in the fun.

You never know who you might see at the wrapping party! We are so lucky that St. Charles Mayor Ray Rogina is always there and a huge supporter of our organization.

Wrapping Party Event Volunteers

Last year we had over 100 amazing volunteers help to make the wrapping party such a success.  A HUGE thank you for being such a big part of our night!  We appreciate you!

Christmas Music DJ

All night long we jam to Christmas music. From Frank Sinatra to Maria Carey, you’ll hear it all!  Don’t be surprised if you see people dancing!

Santa?

Yes, that’s Santa!  He stops by to see what you want and to thank everyone for giving back to those in need.  Have your picture taken too!

Did someone say food?

We are so very fortunate to get such a large selection of food and desserts!  I personally had to try everything that came in. I gained my holiday weight all in one night!

Community Help

We are so thankful to our local firemen who come out to wrap, then to help load all the wrapped gifts to take to the schools.  They even help to unload them there. I know the school social workers and staff really appreciate it and so do we!

Community Coming Together

Over 60 local businesses helped out in 2019 as a sponsor for the wrapping party or a sponsor for buying gifts for the children.  Thank you all for helping to make this happen!

Face Painting by Midwest Fun Factory

Everyone wants to be next in line to get their faces painted!

Last, but not least…

No gift wrapping party would be complete without the Big Hearts of Fox Valley mascot, Freddy!

We hope you will join us at The Royal Fox Country Club for our 6th Annual Christmas Gift Wrapping Party on December 1, 2020.

Keep an eye out for our wrapper sign-up sheet. It will be available soon! We also have ways you can volunteer throughout the year!
