It was a flippin’ success.
The Chilliwack Firefighters Charitable Society’s annual pancake breakfast brought in $8,000 for the B.C. Firefighters Burn Fund on Canada Day.
“This breakfast was the biggest and most successful in our department’s history. We are extremely pleased with the outcome,” said firefighter Jenny Ballam.
Nearly $6,000 came in from the breakfast, plus more than $2,000 was raised in clothing sales. This year they were selling brand new T-shirts.
The Chilliwack Fire Department would like give “a huge thank you to the people of Chilliwack who came out to support it,” adds Ballam.
The goals of the Chilliwack Firefighters’ Charitable Society are to: raise money for the B.C. Firefighters Burn Fund, raise money to assist youth and youth programs, provide bursaries for scholastic achievement and continuing education, raise money for medical and health care research, assist members of the community of Chilliwack by supporting community-minded programs and to provide relief from poverty.
