Back for its 26th straight year, the Pan Pacific Vancouver is holding its annual Christmas Wish Breakfast on Wednesday December 11th from 6am – 9am.
Each year we ask Vancouver to join us at the Hotel and donate a new unwrapped toy the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau which helps needy children during the Holiday season. In exchange for everyones generosity, the Pan Pacific will provide a complimentary hot breakfast buffet on the house!
Never been to the Wish Breakfast before? Well to give you an idea….last year we saw over4,000 people visit the Hotel donating over 12 tonnes of toys and $25,000 in cash donations. For breakfast we served over 12,500 sausages, 1200 lbs of of hashbrowns, 800 kg of eggs and 4200 croissants. Not bad huh?

City’s Actions Displace Low-Income Seniors, Artists and threaten 120 year old Ming Sun Benevolent Society Historic Property in Japantown!
Representatives of the Ming Sun Benevolent Society, members of Instant Coffee artist collective and outraged citizens of Vancouver held a news conference to reveal how the City of Vancouver ignored its own rules and demolished a building, resulting in not only the possible loss of one of the oldest buildings in Vancouver, but also the displacement of low income seniors, an artist collective, and the Ming Sun Benevolent Society.
The subsequent actions of the City have shown an incredible disregard and disrespect not only for the Ming Sun Benevolent Society, a 90 year old organization representing Chinese Canadians, and for the artist collective Instant coffee who produce international works of art , but also to every taxpayer in Vancouver.
Date & Time: Friday, December 6 9:30 A.M. yes
