United Way Breakfast seeks volunteer musicians

The United Way Breakfast and Auction is approaching! Come hungry on September 29th, 2017 from 6:30am – 9:30am (that’s right, set that coffee-maker timer for EARLY) at the Coast High Country Convention Centre in Whitehorse. Last year’s breakfast has allowed the United Way to support Yukon based non-profits and organizations with over $100,000 in funding.

If you are interested in helping out a great cause please contact Andrew Seymour at Andrew.Seymour@gov.yk.ca
