More than food on the menu at holiday benefit breakfast

On Friday, November 27, the La Stanza Buffet & Grill Restaurant in St. Leonard will host the Generations Foundation Holiday Benefit Breakfast. La Stanza staff will arrive at 4am to prepare the buffet. When 92.5 The Q begins its broadcast at 5:30am, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee will be wafting through the air.

Volunteers from high schools and CEGEPs, board members, friends and acquaintances play an integral role in this labour of love for children. They will don their Generations aprons and be ready when the doors open at 6:30 am. When you walk in the door, Adrian and I will be delighted to meet and greet you, along with our team of volunteers and an assortment of 50 brunch delectables.

We are very thankful to La Stanza owner Peter Bakos and his family for their generosity and support over the years. They have helped to shape the lives of precious children and their families by helping us raise $1,195 million dollars over the last decade.

Global Quebec’s This Morning Live, terminated over a year ago, contributed to Generations Foundation’s success. The show was broadcast live on location at 21 La Stanza breakfasts. The loss of This Morning Live and what it did for us tugs at my heart. Many Global TV personalities played a role in shaping Generations Foundation including the Asper family, Maureen Rogers, Jamie Orchard, Andrew Peplowski, Tracey McKee, Richard Dagenais and Ken Bodanis.

Last year, Corus Québec’s 92.5 The Q and AM940 stepped up to the plate. Aaron Rand, Ken Connors or Natasha Hall will host our November breakfast live on location.

Bring your autograph book. We are often treated to visits by surprise guests. At recent breakfasts we were fortunate to have our pictures taken with former Expos Ron Piché and Denis Boucher as well as the Club de hockey junior de Montréal. Thanks to Hasbro, we will have many toys to give out to children who attend. We encourage everyone to come and enjoy the festivities.

Tickets are $10, and proceeds from the event will support Generations Foundation’s breakfast, lunch, and snack programs for needy kids.

If you can’t attend the breakfast but would like to contribute, you can mail in a donation to Generations Foundation, C.P. Elysée 89023, Laval QC H7W 5K1.

La Stanza Buffet & Grill Restaurant is at 6878 Jean Talon E. in St. Leo­nard. The breakfast runs from 6:30 to 10 am. Tickets are available at the door.
