Mark your calendars for LITE’s (that’s Local Investment Toward Employment) 17th annual Wild Blueberry Pancake Breakfast, on Friday, November 22 from 7 – 10 am at the Indian and Metis Friendship Centre (45 Robinson at Dufferin).
The breakfast is one of the events organized to raise funds for LITE’s Alternative Christmas Hamper Initiative, which provides hampers to families in need during the holiday season with purchases food from inner-city businesses. Come out and enjoy some delicious pancakes, listen to fantastic local entertainment, and shop at the local crafters market. While you’re there, you may run into some local celebrities like Blue Bomber Alumnus James Murphy, local entertainer Al Simmons, and Winnipeg’s funniest person with a day job, Chantel Marostica. LITE’s Executive Director, Anne Lindsey, is excited about this year’s event.
LITE’s Pancake Breakfast is THE place to be on November 22. The food is delicious and local, the entertainment outstanding, and this is a major fundraiser for LITE’s Alternative Hamper campaign and Working Solutions Fund. We call it Community Economic Development in action!”
