2016 Commons Breakfast

Last week Third Place Commons held its annual fundraising breakfast with more than 240 people in attendance. Allen Schauffler brought his usual charm to the job of Master of Ceremonies and Mayor Jeff Johnson shared some of his visions for the city.

This year the Commons’ Community Partner Award honored the Church of the Redeemer for its generous contributions to the Market Bucks program over the past five years. (see previous article)

After a wonderful breakfast of Honey Bear bacon, eggs and scones and a tasty chocolate from the Chocolate Man served up by the Interact Club and the Youth Council students, Schauffler led a short but lively auction.

Many thanks to all of you who came to the event, donated to the Commons and to all of the friends and supporters of this amazing community asset.

The annual breakfast raises about a third of the annual budget of the Commons. These funds help support the staff who organize events, provide sound and tech support and manage the Commons.
