White Rock firefighters set for annual Breakfast with Santa

A holiday tradition at the White Rock firehall continues this weekend, as firefighters prepare to serve breakfast to hundreds on Saturday

White Rock firefighters are gearing up to host their 16th annual pancake Breakfast with Santa.

The popular event organized by the Local 2407 crew welcomes families and individuals to the Pacific Avenue firehall (15315 Pacific Ave.) from 8 a.m. to noon on Dec. 3, for a morning meal that includes pancakes, sausage and bacon, as well as juice, tea and coffee – all prepared by the firefighters themselves.

The breakfast is a fundraiser for the White Rock Firefighters Charity Association, which benefits local charities as well as the Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund. The crew has also committed to raise $500,000 for the Peace Arch Hospital ER expansion, in conjunction with the Surrey Firefighters charitable association.

Last year, more than 700 breakfasts were served and $5,800 was raised. In addition, 200 new, unwrapped toys were collected and donated to Sources for distribution. Toys will again be collected at this year’s breakfast.

The busiest time of the morning is typically between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m.

Cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children.
