Read on for more details.


Annual Breakfast

The Annual Breakfast is the biggest event on the MIYFS Foundation calendar with almost 600 guests last year. Attendees hear from MIYFS as well as local Islanders about the impact of MIYFS on their lives and the well being of the community. There is no charge to attend the breakfast but there is a suggested minimum donation of $250 per person.

Registration opens December 1.

Sponsorship accomplishes two vital functions in our community: underwriting the costs of putting on the Breakfast AND offering direct support to MIYFS programs and services. Email Sari Weiss or call her at 206-275-7756 to learn more about Sponsorship Opportunities.

Table Captains help us fill the room! Interested in inviting 10 friends to sit with you on February 7? Contact Jody Kris for more information: Email:Jody Kris or call her at 301-442-0953.
