After successfully kicking off Beyond the Entertainer in 2020 with Leno Claus in Chicago and Oakland, we have had back-to-back successful years in 2021 and 2022, wrapping the DC area into our outreach. Our founders, Charles & Jennifer, created Leno Claus in 2020 after having their first child & watching all of the previews for the 25-day countdown to Christmas (they now are onto child number 4!). They decided they wanted to have their own countdown to Christmas & created Leno Claus. From December 1st to December 20th, Beyond the Entertainer partners with 20 organizations, donating holiday gifts, stocking stores at organizations, giving away items, making monetary donations, etc. Beyond the Entertainer allows fans worldwide to nominate friends and family who needed a little holiday cheer for the last five days. Five individuals/families are chosen, each granted some holiday cheer. Nominations for 2023 are now open!
