Penticton and South Okanagan
United Way drive-thru
Oct 16, 2013 / 1:13 pm
The main entrance at the Penticton Lakeside Resort will again be transformed into a drive-thru Thursday morning.
The hotel is partnering with the United Way to present the second annual Drive Thru Breakfast.
"The support from local businesses and volunteers has been overwhelming," said Jennifer Park, director of resource development. "I am proud to live in a community that rallies together to support nonprofits and vulnerable people."
Community members are invited to drive, walk, blade or bike through. At the hotel, they will be treated to giveaways from local sponsors, hot breakfast wraps prepared by David Prystay, general manager of the hotel, coffee, a breakfast bag filled with goodies from sponsors and more.
There will be grand prizes and members of the Penticton Vees junior hockey team will shine the car windows of those who show up.
Last fall, all of the 550 breakfast bags were purchased before 8:30 a.m. at the first drive-thru breakfast and just under $8,000 was raised for local community impact programs and services. This year, there are well over 750 breakfast bags available, valued well over $100 each.
The breakfast is between 7 and 9 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Penticton Lakeside Resort.
