It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I’m dreaming of eggs and bacon. On Dec. 12, the inaugural Christmas fundraising event “It’s a Wonderful Breakfast” will take place. Hosted by the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley, funds raised by this year’s breakfast will support youth mental health programming and mentorship programs.
The Foundation is also hosting a Toy & Toiletry Drive at the breakfast. Toys collected will go to the Pediatric Unit playrooms; making a child’s stay in the hospital a more pleasant experience. Toiletries and other comfort items collected will help fill the needs of the Fraser East mental health programs and other patients in need.
To youth participating in mental health programs the small things count; Nail polish, shaving kits, puzzles and other items can lift spirits and make a positive impact.
The festive event includes a breakfast buffet, guest speaker Corey Hirsch, former ice hockey goaltender and current colour commentator on Vancouver Canucks radio broadcast, holiday entertainment and door prizes. It also has been confirmed that there will be a visit by the jolly old man himself – Santa
It’s A Wonderful Breakfast is from 7 to 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 12 at The Stage in Mission.
Tickets are $15 each or a reserved table of six for $90.
Make sure you are on the nice list and get your tickets early on line at fvhcf.ca or by phone at 1-877-661-0314.
