What is the Giving from the Heart Breakfast?

Quite simply – it is our largest fundraising event of the year – celebrating and supporting Mercer Island Youth & Family Services (MIYFS), and keeping Mercer Island strong by providing hope and empowering lives.

In its 14th year, we invite you to join us, along with nearly 600 community members, as we raise awareness and funds at an all-inclusive event that preserves the life span of services available to every Mercer Island resident – through MIYFS.
