LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – This year Santa had some special helpers as the UofL National Champs helped him deliver presents even in inclement weather.

Kosair Charities held their annual Holiday Bash where they supplied the entertainment and gifts for children with special needs and those less fortunate. Hundreds of children attended the bash where the Cards signed autographs.

"I think our players are getting more out of being here today than the kids because you know that old Christmas adage of ‘it's better to give than receive'," said Rick Pitino. "Certainly our players are receiving a lot by being out here with the kids today."

This was the 17th year for the event.
