Growing Hope Breakfast | Caritas Family Solutions

February 24, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Caritas Family Solutions will host its ninth annual Growing Hope Breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Hecker Community Center.

This event raises awareness of, and funding for, essential services that Caritas provides to build well-being in the community.

“The annual benefit breakfast is a wonderful way for the community to come to understand the importance of the work we do as an organization,” Caritas CEO Gary Huelsmann said. “Without the help of community support, we wouldn’t be able to completely fulfill our mission to help people live healthier lives and reach their full potential.”

There is no cost to attend the breakfast, but donations will be accepted. Doors open at 8:30 a.m., and a hot breakfast buffet will begin at 9 a.m.

Entertainment and a brief presentation will follow the breakfast.

Waterloo Mayor Tom Smith will serve as Master of Ceremonies and St. Louis Cardinals mascot Fredbird will make an appearance.

There will also be a silent auction, raffles and attendance prizes.

For more information or to make reservations, visit or contact Samantha Lappe at 618-213-8717 or
