For the past 15 years, Ron and Barbara Cameron and Laura Adler, owners of Bernard C. Chocolates in Lake Oswego, have presented a super-sized chocolate Santa to an organization involved with children as a means for the organization to raise funds to support its programs. by: SUBMITTED - Children of Christ Church Preschool with the chocolate Santa donated by Bernard C.

This year the chocolate makers selected Christ Church Preschool to receive a Santa valued at $600 and made of 28 pounds of dark, white and milk chocolate.

The preschool is holding a raffle for the super-sized Santa. Tickets are $10 each or three for $25 and can be purchased in the church narthex between church services Dec. 16 (8:45 to 10 a.m. or 10:45 to 11:45 a.m.) or between 3 and 4 p.m. before the Not-So-Silent Night Christmas pageant at 4 p.m., or by calling the church office at 503-636-5618, ext. 112. The winner will be chosen following the pageant but does not have to be present to win.

“Christ Church Preschool provides a nurturing, learn-through-play, child-centered environment for children ages 2 through pre-k,” said Director Candace Ray.

“We offer an enriching, challenging curriculum that will help develop a child’s social, emotion, physical, cognitive and spiritual growth. This environment appeals to a child’s sense of wonder and curiosity as they discover new things about their physical and spiritual worlds.”

The preschool is offered through Christ Church Episcopal Parish and is located at the church, 1060 Chandler Road in Lake Oswego.
