A local Cocoa Beach event partners with a non-profit organization this year In hopes to gain as many donations for it as possible.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLA. – DEC 7, 2017– Skydiving Santa’s, a Christmas skydiving themed event hosted at the Cocoa Beach Pier has partnered this year with Toys For Tots to give back this holiday season.

On Saturday December 16th from to 4 p.m, 60 Skydivers from the Air Sports Parachute Team will be dressed in full Santa attire and jump out of three aircrafts, Tico Bell C-7, Twin Otter and Bel 142 helicopter onto the Cocoa Beach Pier’s shoreline. Reaching up to speeds of 60mph, these skydivers will attempt to land perfectly onto holiday themed inflatable targets.

Previously known as a skydiving and surfing event, Skydiving Santa’s has now become a separate event from Surfing Santa’s due to it’s vast popularity.

Now, every December, hundreds of locals and visitors swarm the Cocoa Beach Pier area to watch the Skydiving Santa’s from the Air Sports Parachute Team entertain the crowd by skydiving right onto the beach.

This year, Skydiving Santa’s is working alongside Toys for Tots to ensure each less fortunate child receives a gift this Christmas.

“We have over 1900 children registered to receive toys and we do not have enough funding or toys to make that happen,” stated Toys for Tots Coordinator, Denise Farias. “Please support this amazing foundation and remember the toys stay in Brevard!”
