Third Place Commons will host their Annual Community Breakfast this coming Thursday, February 16th, which makes this your last chance to get tickets to the big event. The breakfast is the Commons’ biggest fundraiser of the year and its proceeds support the year-round events that make the Commons such a vibrant center of the community.
This year’s event will honor two teachers from Shorecrest High School, Vince Caruso and Laura King, with the Friends of Community Award. It will also feature a short, moving keynote from Shorecrest alum turned national touring and recording artist Ian McFeron. Plus you won’t want to miss the live, breakfast speed auction or the delicious breakfast fare courtesy of Honey Bear Bakery.
Tickets are $50 each or $375 for a table of eight. They can be purchased online here or in-person at Third Place Books. The breakfast starts at 7 AM.
But where does your generous support go?
Each year Third Place Commons, which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, hosts over 900 free events. These include live music and dancing every Friday and Saturday night, weekly “play and learn” sessions for infants and toddlers, monthly Art-Ins, public service info fairs, foreign language conversation groups, weekly game nights and wordplay, t’ai chi classes, and more.
Of course, Third Place Commons also presents the beloved Lake Forest Park Farmers Market from Mother’s Day through the third Sunday in October each year. Funds raised at the breakfast will help support the market as well as the Market Bucks food assistance program, which empowers low-income neighbors facing food insecurity to access fresh, healthy, locally grown and produced food at the market.
