What's Giving from the Heart?
The Giving from the Heart Breakfast is a Mercer Island community event, held the second Wednesday of February each year that attracts over 400 recognized and active community members. This lively, fast-paced and dynamic community celebration is known to be inspirational, informative and entertaining--it's a true tradition among Islanders.
