The Christmas Cheer broadcast began in 1951 with CFRA and the West Ottawa Lions Club. The Foundation was created in 2007. Each year a breakfast is held at the Westin Hotel. It is a way to fundraise for local charities for the city of Ottawa and the surrounding area. The foundation supports local non-profit organisations whose efforts provide assistance and programs to disadvantaged families during the Christmas season. The Hendry Warren partners and managers are proud supporters of the foundation. They enjoyed a wonderful breakfast offered by the Westin hotel, and the broadcast by CFRA. Thank you to everyone who donated and made someone’s Christmas a little brighter.
