Go and enjoy a delicious breakfast. No speakers, no speeches, no pitches — just a great time for the family! Brother to Brother is also collecting winter coats, scarves, hats, gloves to those less fortunate. Proceeds from the breakfast benefit Brother to Brother students through our college scholarship program.
