Break­fast will help Haitians

Cape Breton Post - - GLACE BAY/NEW WATERFORD -

GLACE BAY — Here is a chance to help earth­quake-rav­aged Haiti while hav­ing break­fast.

A pan­cake break­fast takes place 9 a.m.-12 p.m., Satur­day at the Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­tion Church.

“The CWL and fi­nance com­mit­tee are do­nat­ing all the food, so all of the money raised will go to Haiti,” said Brenda MacLean, pres­i­dent of the prop­erty and fi­nance com­mit­tee at Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­tion in Bridge­port.

The break­fast in­cludes pan­cakes, sausage, juice, muffins and cof­fee or tea.

The men of the Ital­ian Hall in Do­min­ion are mak­ing the sausages.

“They do so much for us all the time and we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate their as­sis­tance. They are a big help.”

MacLean said they usu­ally put on a pan­cake break­fast twice a year, to raise funds for a good cause. Last year they organized a pan­cake break­fast at the Ital­ian Hall to raise funds for St. Joseph Church in Re­serve Mines, af­ter van­dals smashed the ma­jor­ity of the win­dows in the church.

Help­ing with the break­fast will be the ‘crew’, a group of 14 young peo­ple from Bridge­port school who as­sist with all the fundrais­ers and events at the church.

Last year dur­ing grave­yard day, the crew painted all the white crosses.

“There was quite a breeze and of course we are us­ing metal paint which is hard to get off. All the kids were in church that night cov­ered in paint head to toe, but so proud of what they had done.”

Tick­ets for the break­fast can be pur­chased at the Breeze­way Con­ve­nience Store in Bridge­port or at the door Satur­day. Ad­mis­sion is $5 for adults and $2.50 for chil­dren.
