Breakfast for a cause

Get breakfast while helping out a good cause this Friday.

The second annual “Breakfast in a Box” fundraiser for the Greater Vernon KidSport Fund.

The event will be a drive-through breakfast from 7–10 a.m. in the old Canadian Tire parking lot at 27th Street and 46th Avenue.

The breakfast will consist of three pancakes, two sausages, a drink box, condiments (syrup, butter and ketchup) and a Tim Horton’s coffee for a minimum $5 donation with all proceeds going directly to KidSport.

KidSport helps provide children between the ages of six and 18, access to sport opportunities and experiences in both team and individual sports.

KidSport believe young people can learn more than athletic skills from sport. Sport's challenges can teach children the value of leadership, desire, planning, practice, hard work, honesty, sacrifice, dedication, positive thinking and self-confidence.

“Last year was the first year for this fundraiser and the Leo’s along with the Lion’s Club raised $1,385,” said, Shayne Wright, recreation program co-ordinator. “It was a fun morning and people were very generous. We are hoping for a bigger turnout this year”

The Leos are a community-based youth group ages 12 to 18 dedicated to making Vernon a better place.
