2016 Fantasy Flight Press Release

On Saturday, 12-10-16, the Cops Care Cancer Foundation will host their annual Christmas Fantasy Flight event.  Approximately 150 children who are stricken with cancer, from Bay Area families, will attend the event this year.  Fantasy Flight is a powerful and fun event for Bay Area families that have a child stricken with cancer. 

The event provides a fun atmosphere where each child and their family are treated to a fun filled day in our version of the North Pole.  In addition to all the carnival games, jumper houses, food and guests, Santa Claus arrives by police helicopter to deliver a specific toy for every child including the patient’s siblings.  We also provide financial assistance and clothing to each family to help with the added expense of the holiday season.  Police Officers & Fire Fighters from San Jose, Fremont, Sunnyvale, Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Francisco and the CHP will be participating. 

The families will arrive at Juniper Networks in Sunnyvale where they will load up into police vehicles, limos, military trucks, luxury busses and fire trucks.  Police motorcycles from all of the participating agencies will lead this special motorcade to the San Jose PD Air Hangar, located at the Mineta San Jose International Airport.  The kids and their families will enter the Air Hangar which has been magically transformed into the North Pole. 

The kids will enjoy all of the festivities until Santa arrives by police helicopter to deliver gifts to every child. These aren't just any gifts either  The Cops Care Cancer Foundation staff does their homework and finds out exactly what each child has asked Santa for. Magically, those gifts are under the tree waiting for them.  Each family will also receive financial assistance to provide their own celebration on Christmas day.

Event Details:

10:30 AM: Motorcade staging at Juniper Networks "Aspiration Dome", located at 5th Ave. and N. Mathilda Ave. in Sunnyvale (Signs will guide you in).
