If you’re looking for a way to start your morning off right, the 9th annual United Way Drive-Thru breakfast is one way to do it.
The popular fundraiser starts at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8 and runs until 9 a.m outside the Penticton Lakeside Resort.
This year’s event will include COVID-19 safety measures to ensure that everyone is safe.
Those measures include contact tracing, hand sanitizer stations, a restricted number of volunteers, and service for guests in cars only.
Last year’s fundraiser brought in over $25,000 for local charities and community programs.
With charities having to adapt and invest in COVID-19 safety measures, support from the community is even more important.
There will be 1,000 breakfast bags this year, stuffed with donated fresh food, coupons from local businesses, and special grand prizes in certain bags.
Some of the grand prizes include a Vancouver Canucks jersey, two lift passes to Revelstoke Mountain Resort, and a golden ticket for $1,000 to invest with Valley First credit union.
In exchange for a donation, guests will receive Jdog and cat treats, coffee, hot breakfast, a grocery bag, and more.
