SPORTS CELEBRITY BREAKFAST
The Sports Celebrity Breakfast is the signature fundraising event of the CJCS Foundation and a much-beloved annual celebration of community leaders, sports heroes, and legends, all of whom come together to raise funds for “Seniors in Crisis.”
We returned to our live and in-person 18th edition of the Sports Celebrity Breakfast on June 12th, 2022 at Le Jardin Royalmount (8187 chemin Royden) to a sold out crowd of over 400 attendees. We are proud to announce that the event raised over $300,000 this year in support of seniors in crisis.
The 2022 edition marked the first in-person breakfast since April of 2019, and the energy in the room was palpable!
