Kiwanis prepare for major fundraiser to assist area youth

One of the Cullman area’s major fundraisers for programs aimed at young people is planned Saturday at the Kiwanis Club’s annual Pancake Day.

Scheduled 6 a.m. to noon at the Cullman High School cafeteria, Kiwanians will be serving up fresh pancakes and sausage for dine-in or carryout orders. There will also be a drive-through available.

Proceeds from the event, which could top $10,000, are used for a variety of projects in the local community, including Reading Is Fundamental, books for Head Start students, scholarships and support of Key Club organizations in schools, and Cullman Caring for Kids, said Kiwanis Club member Bob Palys.

“The event is always a lot of fun. The cost is $7 per person for all you can eat if you dine at the cafeteria. I think the record is still 21 pancakes that someone ate a few years ago,” Palys said.

Tickets may be purchased in advance from Kiwanis Club members or at the door Saturday. The cost remains $7, whether tickets are purchased in advance or the day of the event. Children six and under eat for free.

“Our goal is to raise at least $10,000. Every penny is spent on projects for youth in the area. This is our 57th year to host the pancake dinner and we hope it’s another great success. Anyone who participates can feel good knowing that all of the money is used locally for young people,” Palys said.
