FV Health Care Foundation holds annual hospital fundraiser on Dec. 10

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) is taking a different approach to its annual holiday fundraiser, It’s a Wonderful Breakfast.

This year for the third annual event, the agency has partnered with White Spot to offer guests a safe drive-thru experience on Thursday, Dec. 10 from 7 to 9 a.m.

For $15, guests will receive a BC Sunny Start – choice of crispy bacon or no bacon, cheddar cheese, grilled tomato and a fried egg with White Spot’s triple O sauce in a signature bun – and a cup of coffee.

“Is there a better way to start off your morning than that, while also supporting a great cause?” asks Liz Harris, executive director of FVHCF.

Money raised at this year’s event will go towards the ER expansion at Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

FVHCF is also hosting a Toy and Toiletry Drive at the breakfast. Guests will have the opportunity to say hello to Santa, as he will be on site collecting the donated items.

He will place them in his magic toy sack and deliver them to the hospital.

Toys collected will go to the pediatric unit playrooms. Toiletries and other comfort items will help fill the needs of the Fraser East mental health programs and other patients in need.

“To the youth participating in mental health programs, the small things count,” Harris said.

Suggested items include nail polish, shaving kits, puzzles and more.

Time slots are limited to 30 cars per half hour. Tickets can be purchased online at fvhcf.ca/breakfast or by calling the office at 1-877-661-0314. Tickets are $15 each or $50 per carload of four.
