The Buckeye Santa's were organized in 2007 under the laws, rules and regulations of the State of Ohio for the purposes of fellowship, and for supporting, mentoring and promoting the professional development of our members, as well as, social networking for Santas, and those Christmas Performers within the organization who appear and perform in the Spirit of Christmas. The Buckeye Santa's strive to offer Santa's services to deserving organizations.
