United Way Cowichan kicks of this year’s community campaign by hosting a pancake breakfast in Duncan’s Charles Hoey Park on Saturday morning.

The interim advisor for the non-profit organization is Heather Gardiner.

Gardiner says in addition to breakfast there will be some local musical performances.

She adds all funds raised at the event will go towards local community programs and services that invest in the well-being of families, connect seniors and help kids be all they can be.
