Support Autism Speaks

This holiday season, our events may look a little different, but our commitment to supporting Autism Speaks and Autism Speaks Canada hasn’t changed. We hope you’ll join us, in person or virtually, to make Christmas 2020 a memorable one.

Our Support of Autism Speaks

Cherry Hill Programs is excited to continue its annual fundraising tradition during the Christmas 2020 holiday season with donation proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks ( & Autism Speaks Canada (

While making an advance reservation to visit Santa ( and following every in-person visit with Santa, guests will be offered an opportunity to add a donation at checkout in support of Autism Speaks.

Since 2015, Cherry Hill Programs' customers have generously donated more than $1,000,000 in support of Autism Speaks' mission: Funding research, advocating for the needs of people with autism, and providing free tool kits for everyday challenges throughout the life span.

About our 2020 Santa Season

To all of the families we love to welcome for visits with sensory-friendly Santa each year, please note that due to COVID-19 and its impact on our physical locations, we are sadly unable to host dedicated sensory-friendly special events for the 2020 season.

However, we do anticipate shorter wait times and a quieter experience on these dates, and invite you to join us by making a reservation to visit Santa during normal business hours:

  • Wednesday, December 9
  • Wednesday, December 16

Reservations are strongly encouraged. Walk-up visits will be allowed on a space available basis. Visit to plan your visit and learn more about what to expect when you visit Santa.

Cherry Hill Programs' staff, including Santa, have been specially trained to interact with special needs children and will take cues from a parent or caregiver who knows the child’s abilities and preferences.

If you are unable to visit Santa in-person this year, you can still make this a Christmas they'll never forget. Just add some Holiday Magic. Visit to meet Santa online.
