It’s a Wonderful Breakfast raises funds for youth programs

Event on Dec. 6 in Abbotsford supports mental health and mentorship

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley host the inaugural It’s a Wonderful Breakfast fundraiser on Thursday, Dec. 6.

The event runs from 7 to 9:30 a.m. at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre in Winter Wonderland (the former Sears location).

The festive event includes a breakfast buffet; guest speaker Jim Sinclair, board chair for Fraser Health; holiday entertainment; door prizes; and a visit from Santa himself.

Funds raised by this year’s breakfast will support youth mental-health programming and mentorship programs.

The foundation is also hosting a Toy and 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.

Items such as nail polish, shaving kits and puzzles can lift spirits and make a positive impact.

Tickets for the breakfast are $20. They can be purchased online at fvhcf.ca or by calling 1-877-661-0314.

The FVHCF continues to fund vital equipment and programs for Abbotsford Regional Hospital. All funds raised in Abbotsford stay in the community.
