Each year at Pursuant, we take part in a little something we like to call, The Santa Games. (?Cue the Hunger Games theme song.?)

While we don’t have a physical fight in the office, we battle with our donations to choose who will be Santa at our annual Christmas party.

We donate all of the money raised each year to Toys for Tots, and we’re excited to say that this year, we raised $720 —  in just 5 days! 

Our winner this year was Vice President, Erik Tomalis. Erik unfortunately was on the road for our Christmas party, so he chose Marketing Manager, Tim Entzminger, as his stand-in.

Chosen as Santa, Tim got to pick who would be his trusty sidekick, Buddy the Elf. Payback for the promotion of “Tim for Santa,” by the Marketing team, he chose Paige Bannecker, Marketing & Brand Manager (disgruntled elf and author of this post).

Despite being in costumes in 70° weather here in Dallas, we had a great time celebrating the season with our co-workers. We even had a tacky Christmas sweater contest, ruled by our own Ryan Nguyen. You’ll be hard pressed to find a sweater tackier than this. Great job, Ryan!

We have been so blessed this year at Pursuant, and we want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
