United Way “Rock Star” Breakfast brings out A-list stars
The United Way 2017 Kick Off “Rock Star” Breakfast had organizers and community leaders dressed up as rock stars at 7 a.m. on Thursday.
Few people show that kind of enthusiasm at 7 a.m. unless they’ve been up all night.
But the United Way has way of getting people into the spirit of giving.
Costumes ranged from Janis Joplin, Pink, David Bowie, Slash and Gord Downie, Mayor Colin Basran’s alter ego. Turning 40 years this fall, the Mayor had a little help on stage and entertained the early morning breakfast crowd with his rendition of The Tragically Hip’s, Boots or Hearts.
