The fourth annual Toys for Tots Christmas Breakfast, in support of the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau, takes place Friday, Nov. 25.

The event runs from 6 to 9:30 a.m. at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre (36035 North Parallel Rd.).

A free buffet breakfast is provided in exchange for a toy or cash donation to the Christmas Bureau, which operates as the Abbotsford Food Bank the rest of the year.

Donations can also be dropped off at the drive-through, where a hot drink and pastry will be provided to donors as firefighters deliver the donations to the ballroom floor.

This year’s event includes entertainment by the Ever After Princesses, MEI Chamber Singers, local musicians, and comedian Clifford Prang, as well as a photo booth and a visit from Santa.

Toys for Tots first ran in 2013 and was modelled after the popular Christmas Wish Breakfast held every year in Vancouver.

Last year, more than 500 people attended the breakfast, resulting in 1,300 toys and $26,000 in cash being donated.
