There are a limited number tickets available for the Character Breakfast benefiting Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program in Miami County. The buffet breakfast will be held from 9-11 a.m. March 12 at the Fort Piqua Plaza Ballroom and is being catered by Mrs. B’s. Children will be able to interact with the story book characters and will also be able to visit with the Piqua, Tipp City, West Milton, and Bradford mayors who will read stories to them. This story book character breakfast will delight children of all ages and will benefit all Miami County children enrolled in the program.
If you are in interested in purchasing tickets please call 339-0502. Tickets are $25 per person and are available for presale purchase only. Tickets will not be sold at the event.
