On Wednesday February 12th, join 600 community-focused islanders at the 18th annual fundraising breakfast hosted by the Mercer Island Youth & Family Services (MIYFS) Foundation at the Mercer Island Community & Event Center.

This year’s theme is hope, and the breakfast program aims to “celebrate island strengths and reignite our shared commitment to see all our islander neighbors live up to their highest human potential.”

Doors open at 7 am for coffee; and the program concludes at 8:30 am. The event is co-chaired by Pam Hinnen and Christina Hendelman, along with a “Breakfast Club” Committee.

The MIYFS Foundation’s exclusive mission is to support the programs and services of the City’s MIYFS Department. There is no charge to attend the breakfast; there is a suggested minimum donation of $250 per person or $500 per couple.

A message on behalf of MIYFS Foundation:

Why attend the Annual Breakfast? The answer is simple. As the sole full-service provider for social and human services in the City, the MIYFS Department delivers an enormous amount of good in the community, often without fanfare. From emergency assistance, to mental health services, to senior outreach and counseling, to the Food Pantry, to the Thrift Shop, to youth programs, to professional mental health counselors in each school, MIYFS is present in the community every step of the way.
