Santa Ric donned the "Red Suit" for the first time in 1973 for his fourth-grade Christmas show and has carried the magic of Santa ever since. In 1980, he made his second appearance at a business Christmas party and has delighted the young and young-at-heart annually ever since. Starting in 1981, Santa began to work more closely with children (especially at-risk youth) and mentally-challenged adults (both passions of his) while still making the rounds of business and social organization Christmas parties. By 1998, Santa moved into a key position that would ultimately shape and direct his future.

By Christmas 2002, "Santa Ric", as he was becoming known, had taken over the reins of an internationally known not-for-profit's largest per-capita Christmas assistance program in the U.S. Still making appearances for children and certain groups, Santa Ric - hat worn proudly - moved from making believe to making Christmas happen for over 50,000 Central Virginia residents. Stepping down from this position in 2009 to focus on other not-for-profit duties, Santa Ric is ready to delight each child and touch the heart of every individual he meets.

Santa Ric's message is simple and straightforward, delivered in a way that touches all: Keeping Christ in Christmas and spreading the word of our Savior's love year-round is his ultimate goal. Santa is available for parties, events, photos, storytelling, personalized letters, inspirational speaking, and portraits with family and pets. Santa Ric advocates for children, especially those with special needs and is always ready to help children's group whenever possible. Ask about special non-profit pricing and services.

Santa Ric was accommodating with our time requests. He was right on time too, which is very important to me. He was very personable with our crowd which was all adults! Everyone loved him! He was great taking pictures with everyone and helping to hand out prizes for our party. I think he may have even booked another gig while here with our neighbors! He was awesome. Made our party over the top! Thank you Santa Ric and gigmasters!!!

Santa Ric added so much fun to our community event! The kids loved him and he was great with them. Smiled for MANY pictures and even came back in after his time was over because a few families walked in late at the end of the party! Definitely recommend Santa Ric to anyone looking for a Santa!

Santa Ric was amazing. He was patient with the children who were a little apprehensive at first and helped ease them into a memorable photo. He was polite and had a great time with my staff and photos after the parent event. Every parent couldn't believe how amazing he looked. I would highly highly recommend Santa Ric to all of my sister schools for next year!
