Foundation to hold 2nd annual community breakfast

The Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation will be hosting the 2nd annual community breakfast on the grounds of the Miramichi Regional Hospital on Friday, August 24, 2007. Proceeds from the breakfast will go towards the Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation’s purchase of a local digital mammogram service for the Diagnostic Imaging Department at the Miramichi Regional Hospital. The breakfast will begin at 6:30 a.m until 11a.m and will be held rain or shine as many local businesses and service clubs have donated tents to provide necessary shelter. Parking for the event will be located across the street from the hospital grounds. Advanced orders for deliveries will be taken until Wednesday, August 22.

“The community breakfast will have a carnival type atmosphere that will not only provide a great breakfast but also free fun for the whole family,” says Joanne Sellars, managing director of the Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation. Entertainment, children’s activities and health information kiosks will be set up for all to enjoy along with the scrambled eggs, hash browns, and bacon breakfast prepared in the morning for a cost of $4. Adding a healthy touch to this breakfast, the public will also be able to choose options such as fruit, yogurt or muffins to go with their meal. Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation board members, local personalities, volunteers, MRHA Board members, staff and physicians from the Miramichi Regional Health Authority will volunteer at the breakfast.

Many local businesses are showing their support through donations. To make a donation to this worthy cause or to purchase tickets, call the breakfast hotline at 623-3303. The breakfast is being sponsored by various businesses and individuals with the main sponsor being Atlantic Superstore.

The Miramichi Regional Hospital Foundation’s purpose is to raise funds for the purchase of equipment; construction projects for erection, extension, or alteration of buildings and provision of care for patients of Miramichi Regional Health Authority.
