Breakfast with the Food Bank May 20, 2010 7-8am

Cuisine and Company has a couple of seats left at our table, please join us!

It’s hard to believe, but Breakfast With The Bank 2010 is only 1 week away! This year we have over 60 tables captains and over 700 guests expected to attend!

We are very proud to have Cpl. Dale Carr, IHIT Strategic Communications/Media Spokesperson, as our keynote speaker. Most of you will know Dale through watching him on the news or seeing him in the newspaper, speaking on behalf of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team. Dale is also the newest member on the Surrey Food Bank’s Board of Directors.

Dale has an inspirational story to tell about time he spent at the food bank with his colleague Sgt. Peter Thiessen. Dale spent a day at the food bank working side by side with a man who is currently in recovery. Dale’s view of food bank clients and volunteers was changed during this life changing experience. Dale was so motivated and inspired; he asked to join our board of directors the very next day! Dale is an amazing asset to the food bank and we are truly looking forward to him speaking about how the food bank changed his world.

We also are welcoming back Mark Madryga, Senior Meteorologist for Global TV, for the second year! It is no surprise that Mark will be hosting our event on his home turf in support of the Surrey Food Bank! We look forward to welcoming Mark and his humour back to host our Breakfast.

Please let me know If you have any questions or concerns. If you have not sent in your guest list, you will be receiving a friendly reminder this week. It takes a week to organize all of the tables, so please send your lists in if you have not done so already.

Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing you all at the Breakfast!
