Breakfast with a bit of Christmas magic comes to Hope this week

Popular health care breakfast fundraiser expands across the Fraser Valley

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and that has the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) dreaming of eggs and bacon.

November 21st will mark the first fundraising event “It’s a Wonderful Breakfast” in Hope. But it’s a breakfast that has been wildly popular in other communities. The FVHCF has previously held fundraising breakfast events in both Chilliwack and Abbotsford.

In addition to expanding the event to Hope this year, the FVHCF will be including Mission in the fundraising festivities.

“We are excited to be able to run this event for all the hospitals we represent,” said Liz Harris, the foundations’s executive director.

Funds raised by this year’s Hope breakfast will support the purchase of the greatly needed stretcher beds for the emergency department at Fraser Canyon Hospital.

The Foundation is also hosting a Toy & Toiletry Drive at the all the breakfasts. Toys collected will go to making a child’s stay in the hospital a more pleasant experience across the region. 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.

This festive event includes a breakfast buffet, guest speakers, holiday entertainment and a raffle. It’s A Wonderful Breakfast – Hope is from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Nov. 21 at the Hope & District Recreational Centre.

Tickets are $15 each or a reserved table of 6 for $90. Make sure you are on the nice list and get you tickets early on line at www.fvhcf.ca or by phone at 1-877-661-0314.
