You’re invited to the first ever American Cancer Society Festival of Hope! This celebration of brunch and breakfast food would not be complete without you!

The Inaugural Breakfastival of Hope will take place on Saturday, September 14th from 10:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. at Miner Park in Glen Carbon. It is a ticketed event at which guests can sample breakfast foods and drinks from local restaurants. We will also have a kid’s area as this is a family-friendly event including a bounce house, games and more!

The American Cancer Society is hosting this new fundraiser to benefit programs and services provided to those affected by cancer. While the American Cancer Society is making progress toward a future without cancer, only without dedication can we work to eliminate cancer altogether.

 

We hope to see you at Breakfastival of Hope!
