"We have booked him many times. He is the real deal. Anyone who
works with Vern is lucky to have him."
Moe Ammar, President,
Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce
"Vern is awesome, he is great with the kids and is the closest thing
to the real deal I've experienced. I highly recommend Vern if you
want a great Santa."
Felix Colello, Division
Chief, Monterey Fire Department
Vern is based in the Monterey Bay
Area. He has joyfully and gratefully been portraying Santa for private
parties, corporate entities, civic events, nursing homes, hospitals
and wherever the Jolly Old Elf is needed since 1994.
Vern brings a great deal of joy and warmth to his portrayal. His
kindhearted nature and his natural beard make him well suited, indeed,
for the job.
Vern stresses that Santa is not just for kids. His mission is to
"bring back the joy of Christmas," and to that end, he says he loves
"getting the whole family involved."
Vern has many repeat customers who enjoy his visits to their family
parties year after year. He also works regularly for The City of
Pacific Grove and The Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce. (You may
have seen him at the annual City of Pacific Grove Tree Lighting
Ceremony.) The City of Monterey Fire Department, Bruno's Market
in Carmel, Wilson Plumbing and Heating, Costco, and Salinas Valley
Memorial Hospital are also among his repeat clientele.
"Vern did an excellent job as Santa
Claus. I plan on calling him to come back."
Fermin Sanchez, Bruno's
