Peppermill’s “photo op” with Santa gathers winter clothing for kids


Anicia Beckwith of Inspire Studios, to bring a brand new Santa experience to the families of Reno, to benefit a good cause.

Peppermill Resort Spa Casino has joined efforts with local photographer, Anicia Beckwith of Inspire Studios, to bring a brand new Santa experience to the families of Reno to benefit a good cause.

The “Pic with Saint Nick” fundraiser will take place on Sunday, December 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the Peppermill’s Tuscany Lounge. In exchange for a donation of one gently used winter clothing item per family, each family will receive a brief sitting with Santa Claus in a beautifully decorated setting and one 5×7 printed picture.

All clothing will be donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada. Additional prints are available for $10 each and 100 percent of proceeds will also benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada.

Beckwith will donate her time and excellent photography skills to provide families with an unforgettable memory of Santa, all while positively affecting children in our local community.
