On Friday, November 30th, we hosted the 1st Annual Christmas Angels Pancake Breakfast. It was organized by the Burnaby Christmas Bureau and sponsored by many local organizations and businesses such as, The Burnaby Firefighters, Scotiabank, McDonalds, including Hilton Vancouver Metrotown!
The purpose of this event was to raise money and collect as many new toys as possible to be donated to the Burnaby Christmas Bureau and given to less fortunate families in our community.
Everyone who came with a new toy or minimum $5 donation, was invited to our pancake breakfast. (which was served by our local Firefighters) If they were in a hurry, McDonalds set up a drive-thru in our front driveway, serving continental breakfast to go! With the help of many, we managed to raise over $4,000.00 in cash and hundreds of toys!
It was a major success and we were so pleased to be a part of such a great fundraiser. Every little child deserves a toy on Christmas and with all of our help, many children in our community will.
