17th Annual Breakfast with Premier Dave Hancock
Over $30,000 Raised For Children and Families
Premier’s Breakfast 2014, sponsored by Bell Canada, benefitted the children and families Kids Kottage serves in several ways. Those of us who have a heart for children and their families and want to prevent harm to children and tragedy in families and in our community took the opportunity to come together to focus on supporting the work of Kids Kottage. Each year, Kids Kottage helps parents to keep their children safe during trying circumstances, averting the need for government children’s services to become involved.
The new Kids Kottage video humbled everyone in attendance by depicting how easily circumstances and situations can become the harbingers of child abuse and neglect. Thanks to Amplomedia for helping us to tell our story.
Premier Hancock eloquently brought to the attention of attendees that although Alberta is a rich province, many children and their families are not able to share in the wealth. Children are Alberta’s greatest resource and it is important that we support and help these families to become strong and vibrant. It is important to ‘be there when the bottom falls out’ and there is nowhere else to turn for help.
Bridget Ryan from Breakfast TV was our MC and auctioneer for this fabulous morning. Bridget’s wonderful sense of humour roused us all to be generous toward this worthy cause. Those in attendance were also encouraged by the wise words of the Premier and Kids Kottage Board Chair, Trish Hebert, and participated well in both the live and silent auctions, making this Premier’s Breakfast a most successful one.
