2011 Christmas Wish Breakfast

For the second year in a row, I was asked to help document the Christmas Wish Breakfast event at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver. This was the 24th year of the event and it was the biggest yet!

A highlight this year was the surprise from the Vancouver Fire Department who had a couple of their guys repel down the exterior of the hotel, with toys in tow:

The dramatic sunrise lighting and venting steam only added to the spectacle!

At the end of the morning, over 12 tonnes of toys had been donated! That should make for a lot of happy kids come Christmas morning!

Thanks to Rishad at the Pan Pacific Hotel for inviting me along…it was a great event to get up early for.
