Christmas Cheer breakfast is officially sold-out!

The long-time popular breakfast that was saved last month will host more than 700 confirmed guests.

Christmas Cheer was abruptly cancelled in October after organizers announced they could not secure a venue.

When Nepean MPP and Tourism Minister Lisa MacLeod heard the news – she stepped up to help secure the provincially owned Shaw Centre last month. Lockheed Martin Canada contributed the remaining $20,000 to make sure the breakfast could move forward.

Now all of the money raised at the breakfast will go back into the community. The breakfast is expected to raise $100,000 that will be donated to local charities.

“Ottawa has proven again our generous nature and that no one should be left behind at Christmas," Minister MacLeod said. "To sell out and raise over $100,000 in a few short weeks after originally being cancelled shows how important Christmas Cheer is to the Capital - I’m grateful to everyone who stepped up”.  

Organizers with the event say corporate tables are sold out. There are a few remaining single tickets for a handful of guests.

Those who are not able to attend can still donate online.
