The Cowichan United Way kicks off its annual campaign with a pancake breakfast Saturday, Sept.19 at Charles Hoey Park.

From 9 to 11 a.m. there are delicious pancakes, live entertainment, a 50-50 draw and raffle and more fun for the whole family all to benefit the Cowichan United Way.

Breakfast costs $8 per person, $15 for two people or $20 for a family.

After years of holding an indoor buffet breakfast on a weekday to kick off the United Way’s annual fundraising campaign, organizers decided last year to broaden their footprint in the community with a more flexible schedule and an open-air location.

The Cowichan United Way traces its roots back to 1969, and it was formally incorporated as a society in 1976. Outside of government, it is the largest funder of social service programs in the Valley.
