Plan for a Christmas-themed breakfast at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel on Dec. 1, as a way to support the hospital and local health care initiatives.

The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation is putting on a special holiday breakfast, titled It’s a Wonderful Breakfast, complete with all an ugly Christmas sweater contest. The proceeds will be directed to the Chilliwack General Hospital’s innovative eye centre, one of the FVHCF’s main fundraising targets this year.

But the breakfast is also a chance to bulk up Christmas gifts for those who use Chilliwack’s health services. Diners are asked to bring along toiletries and small denomination gift cards for those in residential care and young adults in mental health programs.

Both are given out at the holidays to help fill the need in Fraser East.

The breakfast runs from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., and there is a minimum donation of $15. In addition to the ugly sweater contest and buffet breakfast, there will be music from Chilliwack school choirs, a silent auction, and plenty more fun.

Sponsorship packages are available, and more information is available at www.fvhcf.ca.
