American Legion Post 42 will serve its 32nd annual pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 4, at the Legion Hall at 1030 Central St.
Tickets are $7 ($9 at-the-door) and can be purchased online at evanstonpost42.com/events/pancake-breakfast. Kids under 6 eat free.
Proceeds go to select charities serving both veterans and families in need in Evanston and beyond. More than $50,000 has been raised to provide food, clothing, and toys to struggling families during the holiday season.
Recipients have included Connections for the Homeless, Fisher House at Hines VA Hospital, Hecky’s Forrest E. Powell Foundation and PAWWS animal-assisted therapy for the disabled.
Breakfast features buttermilk pancakes with syrup, sausages, and eggs cooked to order. Coffee is served in “bottomless” cups along with milk and orange juice. Guests also can win a 50/50 raffle, with proceeds going to in-care veterans. Parking is available at the Post and in the Chandler Center lot west of the CTA’s Central Street el station. More information is available at Post 42 at 847-475-9076.
