This pedal-powered fire truck will be raffled off at Saturday’s breakfast.

Annual firefighters event returns

Toys collected for local children at Saturday fundraiser

Santa Claus is coming to the White Rock fire hall.

The opportunity to have photos snapped with the Jolly Old Elf is among highlights planned for Saturday (Dec. 7) at the 15315 Pacific Ave. hall, as the Local 2407 crew gears up to host their 18th annual Breakfast with Santa.

In addition to meeting Santa, guests can enjoy a  pancake breakfast ($5 for adults; $3 for children) and buy raffle tickets ($2 each or three for $5) for a chance to win a child-sized, pedal-powered fire truck.

Donations of new, unopened toys will also be accepted. Firefighter Evan Bird said the crew was thrilled to learn that the cache will be complemented by efforts of employees at Peace Arch Hospital, where a “12 Days of Christmas” toy drive is underway.

The toys will benefit local children.

Proceeds from the breakfast and raffle will go to the White Rock Firefighters Local 2407 Charity Association, which supports a variety of community organizations, programs and efforts.

Doors open at 8 a.m. Saturday. The event runs until noon.

For more, call 604-531-6045.
