THE GREATER MONCTON PROGRESS CLUB “ANTLER BREAKFAST”
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 23RD – 6:30AM TO 9:30AM AT THE DELTA BEAUSEJOUR
Over the years the Progress Club’s Antler Breakfast event has become synonymous with the kickoff to Greater Moncton’s Christmas season.
Each year the Antler Breakfast welcomes close to 1,500 people sporting red antlers and savouring an early-morning breakfast served up at the Delta Beauséjour (event co-producer).
This spirited and festive signature event welcomes everyone to a family and corporate-friendly atmosphere where we raise funds for local children’s charities through ticket sales, sponsorship packages and on-site activities like teddy bear sales, a 50/50 draw and donations.
The second and most heart-warming part of the Antler Weekend is Christmas in the Pedway. An essential component of the Club’s identity; we use this event to ensure that our community’s most vulnerable children don’t miss out on the Holiday Spirit.
We transport, feed and entertain sick kids and their families from Greater Moncton’s two Hospital’s pediatric wards, hosting them at the City Hall Pedway.
From the comfort of the Pedway they get to watch the Royale Greater Moncton Santa Claus Parade in safety and warmth all with the best vantage point possible!
Pizza, presents and celebrity guests complete the evening for these children and their families, for whom a Holiday-themed night out is a special, fun-filled respite from their worries and cares, if only for a few hours.
