The Vernon Leo’s Club will hold the second annual “Breakfast in a Box” fundraiser for the Greater Vernon KidSport Fund.
The event will be a drive-through breakfast from 7 – 10 am Friday at the old Canadian Tire parking lot on 27th Street.
The breakfast will consist of 3 pancakes, 2 Ssusages, a drink box, and a Tim Horton’s coffee, all for a minimum $5 donation.
“Last year was the first year for this fundraiser and the Leo’s along with the Lion’s Club raised $1,385,” says Shayne Wright, Recreation Program Coordinator. “It was a fun morning and people were very generous. We are hoping for a bigger turnout this year”

The Leos are a community based youth group ages 12 to 18 dedicated to making Vernon a better place.
