Breakfast fundraiser to support primary care clinic at Chilliwack General Hospital

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation’s event ‘It’s a Wonderful Breakfast’ is Nov. 28

You won’t have to make breakfast on Nov. 28, Chilliwack.

For the fourth year in a row the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) is hosting its annual breakfast fundraising event It’s a Wonderful Breakfast.

Funds raised by this year’s breakfast will support the renovation and expansion of the Primary Care Clinic in the Chilliwack General Hospital.

FVHCF 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. 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.

The festive event includes a breakfast buffet, guest speakers, holiday entertainment and raffle prizes. It has been confirmed that there will be a visit by the jolly old man himself – Santa. The emcee for the morning’s festivities will be Trevor McDonald.

This year’s keynote speaker is Chilliwack local Jim Ryan.

Ryan’s life changed forever in the blink of an eye — his story of survival and recovery has inspired hundreds of men and women to shift perspective, choose gratitude and to keep moving forward through challenges.

It’s A Wonderful Breakfast is from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 28 at the Chilliwack Coast Hotel.

Tickets are $15 each or a reserved table of 10 for $150, and available at www.fvhcf.ca or by phone at 1-877-661-0314.

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation continues to fund vital equipment and programs for Chilliwack General Hospital; all funds raised in Chilliwack support Chilliwack.
