28th Annual Christmas Wish Breakfast is right around the corner!

The Pan Pacific Christmas Wish Breakfast is all about giving to those in need and sharing in the festive spirit of Christmas.

Each year, the Hotel hosts one of Canada’s largest toy drives where the public is asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau for families in need. As a thank you to everyone who makes a donation, the Hotel will be offering a free hot buffet breakfast at the Cafe Pacifica Restaurant.

Long-time media partners Global TV morning news anchor Steve Darling, as well as, Rock 101‘s DJ Willy Percy, will be joining us for a live broadcast on Thursday, November 26 from 6am-9am.

Watch out for performances from the Goh Ballet, Langley Ukuleles, country music star Madelyn Merlo, and the Good Noise Gospel Choir, who will be singing on the Five Sails staircase again this year.

Keep an eye out for Santa Clause, and volunteers from the City of Vancouver Fire Department, who will be in charge of stacking the toys into a towering “tree” in the Pan Pacific Vancouver lobby. After the event, the firemen will transport the toys to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau warehouse, where they will be sorted and distributed to families in need.

Last year’s event set a new record when over 5,000 generous Vancouverities donated over 40,000 lbs of toys, 476 bikes and over $20,000 in cash donated to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau!

Come down on Thursday, November 26 to contribute to our epic toy pile and join thousands of Vancouverites in the spirit of Christmas!

In addition to a toy donation, online cash donations will also be accepted here through the LMCB website.
