The Abbotsford Police Foundation (APF) holds its second annual Crime is Toast breakfast fundraiser on Wednesday, Oct. 26.

The event runs from 7 to 9:30 a.m. at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre, 36035 North Parallel Rd.

The foundation has set a goal to raise $50,000 this year to help fund community programs of the Abbotsford Police Department (APD), which cannot directly receive donations.

The breakfast, with APD Chief Const. Bob Rich, will build awareness of public safety, the work of the APD and the APF, and ways the community can help make a difference.

The APF, established in 2005, is a charitable organization funding APD community programs that are not covered by its operating budget.

In accordance with their donation policy, the APF provides a charitable receipt for every qualified donation over $100. Supporters who purchase a table (eight seats) will receive a tax receipt for 50 per cent of the total.

Visit the APF website at abbypf.ca for information about sponsorship opportunities or purchasing tickets.
