Thankful Thursdays ~ 2019 Austin Police Operation Blue Santa

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Marley Bautista our Regional Marketing Director planned the best ever Coldwell Banker Holiday Party at The Oasis in the Starlight Terrace on the third floor. As the sun set across beautiful Lake Travis our favorite local band Suede played igniting the audience!

Over $4,500 worth of toys were collected for Austin Police Operation Blue Santa at the party! Each office has been collecting mountains of presents to add to our donation. It feels so good to know so many children are going to have a Merry Christmas!

Hmm, that is a pretty good looking Santa, do you think his beard is better than mine?  I really like his blue suit too, I will have to see what my wardrobe coordinator Sharon Tara can do about that for next year, haha.

Hello Dorie - although it is not alway easy, it's difficult to feel blue for too long when there is so much holiday happiness being extended.

Hi Dorie,
That sounds like an awesome time for kids of all ages.  I love the Blue Santa suit and your matching color top. The frame makes the picture absolutely pop!

Morning Dorie.

We laid to rest one of our own man in blue yesterday.  He was executed while in the patrol vehicle a few days ago. Other officers shot the suspect, the motive is still not clear

This reminds me of the Elvis song Blue Christmas, but better in that it's such a great cause. Nice slideshow video too, Dorie.
