United Way serves up breakfast

No need to dirty any dishes Thursday morning, because the United Way has your breakfast

No need to dirty any dishes Thursday morning, because the United Way has your breakfast – all you have to do is drive-thru.

The annual United Way Drive-Thru Breakfast is open for the early riser at 6 a.m. and wraps up at 9 a.m. at the Best Western Vernon Lodge.

Every car that makes a donation gets their windows washed by one of the events many volunteers, a hot Tim Hortons coffee, and a breakfast bag full of goodies.

“It is so awesome that VantageOne sponsors the bags and everything in them is donated,” said Linda Yule, executive director of United Way. “The community loves this event.”

Select bags will have prizes inside provided by one of the many local sponsors.

Also, for the next two months, for every vehicle sold at one of the Bannister Automotive Group dealerships, partial proceeds will be donated directly to the United Way in the North Okanagan and Shuswap regions with the goal of raising $10,000.
