St. Jude breakfast will not be held this year

WOONSOCKET – The annual local breakfast to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital will not be held this year. Event organizers announced they are postponing the breakfast until Sept. 19, 2021, due to COVID-19.

The breakfast, the brainchild of the late Joe Hyder, has been held every year since 1985 at the Club Par-X in Woonsocket. Club volunteers donate the use of the hall and the cooking, and local chapter members raise thousands of dollars every year for the children’s hospital.

Last year’s breakfast raised more than $10,000. Anyone wishing to donate to St. Jude’s can send checks made out to “St. Jude Hospital” to the Woonsocket Chapter, P.O. Box 1962, Woonsocket, RI 02895.
