A pancake breakfast Saturday morning will aim to raise critical funds for Osborne House.
The Winnipeg shelter, which provides a safe haven for women and children to escape domestic violence, had its funding drastically cut several weeks ago. A rally was held soon after a request for $450,000 in funding from the city was turned down.
The Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) Local 2002 — Air Canada division will host the breakfast between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. at Applebee’s at 1150 Grant Avenue. The goal is to raise funds to keep Osborne House fully operational so they may continue to provide help for women and children in need of a safe place and keep their services intact.
All 200 tickets to the breakfast quickly sold out by late Thursday.
