This article shared 2 times since Mon Dec 4, 2017
An army of sexy Santas took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to don red velvet hats ( and not much more ) for the annual Santa Speedo Run, a benefit for Center on Halsted, Saturday, December 2.
The event kicked off at Sidetrack, as the jolly participants signed up and joined together for the singing of the specialized Christmas carol, Jingle Balls. At 2 pm, they hit the streets as all participants took part in a one-mile loop run, originating from and returning to the bar. Host Debbie Fox led the crowd for a post-run celebration and awards ceremony.
Organizers say that this year's event broke records, raking in over $70,000. The top earner, David Roberts, brought in just over $8,500 himself.
