Mom and Dad, your little one can win a $25 gift certificate from the Junction Shopping Center simply by writing their Christmas list to the Jolly Old Elf!

You’ll see Santa’s official North Pole Mail vehicle in the Sonora Christmas parade on Friday, November 25th. At the conclusion of the parade, Santa’s elves will be collecting the letters in front of the Clarke Broadcasting studios at 348 S. Washington. We’ll take your child’s letter, and hold a random drawing of all submissions on the following Monday morning.

Ten kids ages up to 12 years old will win a $25 gift certificate to spend at participating Junction merchants. We may even read your child’s letter on the air!

One entry per child. Incomplete details will disqualify the entry, but the letter may still be read on the air. First names only will be used when the letters are read on the air. Letters read on the air will not necessarily be from random winners.

Entries will be accepted by mail. Address to “Letters to Santa c/o Clarke Broadcasting 342 S. Washington St Sonora CA 95370” Be certain the letter includes your child’s name, age, address and a phone number where you can be reached. You may also drop off your child’s letter in person at our studios. Letters must reach us by Saturday, November 26 at 11:59 pm to be eligible for the drawing.
