White Rock Firefighters are once again gearing up for their annual Breakfast with Santa.

Set for 8 a.m. to noon Dec. 1 at the fire hall (15315 Pacific Ave.), the event – in its 17th year – is a fundraiser for local charities and the B.C. Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund.

It is a festive occasion that historically feeds hundreds of people, young and old, who come out to fill their tummies with pancakes and get in the Christmas spirit.

In addition to brekkie and photos with Santa, the Local 2407 crew is hoping attendees will consider donating new, unopened toys for local children.

Cost of the breakfast remains at “1990 prices,” organizers said – $5 for adults and $3 for children.

The crew is planning for about 700 people.
