Media invitation - A Ho-Ho-Holiday tradition! - Children's Wish youngsters to
search for Santa at 8,000 metres with Air Transat

MONTREAL, Dec. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - You are invited to join dozens of Children's Wish youngsters on Thursday, December 17th as they take off for the North Pole in search of Santa. Accompanied by members of their families and Santa's merry elves, children - who have a life-threatening illness and have been granted a favourite wish - will board an Air Transat flight for an unforgettable experience.

The media is invited to join the children on this 90-minute flight to the "North Pole" during which Santa will make a surprise appearance at 8,000 metres to meet each child and distribute gifts. Several well known personalities such as singer Marie-Hélène Thibert, god-mother of the foundation, and TV hosts Lori Graham and Stéphane Bellavance will also be part of this magical adventure. Possibility of interviews.
