Christmas Wish Breakfast set for Dec. 14

For most people the last minute details of getting ready for Christmas are being taken care of.

For most people the hanging of the lights, trimming of the tree, shopping and last minute details of getting ready for Christmas are being taken care of.

For people who are less fortunate in our community providing a Merry Christmas can be a difficult task.

That is where the Overlander Hotel, the Rush, and the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Development Centre join together to bring some joy to children and families who find this Christmas season so very difficult.

On Wednesday Dec. 14, 2011 from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Overlander Convention Center, Carmen’s Restaurant which is well known for great food will provide you with a gourmet buffet breakfast in exchange for an unwrapped gift or cash donation.

The Rush and their very own Dale Taylor will be live on location from this fabulous and festive fundraising event.

The Christmas Wish Breakfast Buffet is a chance for businesses, friends and family to get together and enjoy a great breakfast, as well as share the spirit of the season.

Call the Overlander Hotel to reserve a table for a quick breakfast 250-392-3321 (table reservations will be made in 30 minute blocks).

Toys and gifts for babies, children and teenagers are all greatly appreciated.

Toys collected from the Christmas Wish Breakfast will be distributed by a number of social services agencies throughout the city.

Together we can make this a very Merry Christmas for all!

Last year more than 1,000 presents and $3,000 in cash was donated and distributed to children who might have otherwise gone without in our community.

Last year the employees and staff of Mount Polly Mines, Toyota, and Williams Lake Central Business Area Improvement Association collected and brought in a large amount of toys for this heartwarming community event.
