Santa stops by Port aux Basques for an­nual tree light­ing and break­fast fundraiser

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - News -

Both the tree light­ing and break­fast with Santa proved to be huge suc­cesses again this year.

Although there wasn’t a tree to light at the Bruce II Sports Cen­tre, it was im­pro­vised with the Char­lie Brown Tree.

The Bruce II of­fered a free 50-minute swim and the Girl Guides sang a few songs.

The Break­fast with Santa saw a great re­sponse. This year 190 break­fasts were served, a solid in­crease from last year’s 107 break­fasts.

In to­tal, $380 was col­lected at the door, and the money raised was split equally be­tween the Gate­way Women’s Cen­tre and the Sal­va­tion Army for the food bank.

Ap­pre­ci­a­tion went out to the spon­sors and vol­un­teers.
