American Legion Post 42 will conduct its 34th annual pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 2 at the Legion Hall, 1030 Central St. The price is $9 and children 6 and under eat free.
Breakfast features buttermilk pancakes with real maple syrup, sausages and eggs cooked to order. Coffee is served in “bottomless” cups along with milk and orange juice. Guests can also participate in a 50/50 raffle with proceeds going to in-care veterans. Raffle tickets at $1 each can be purchased anytime at the Clubroom or during the breakfast, after which winners will be announced.
Proceeds go to selected charities serving both veterans and families-in-need in Evanston and beyond. More than $55,000 has been raised in recent years to provide food, clothing and toys to organizations such as Connections for the Homeless, Fisher House at Hines VA Hospital, the National Emergency Fund and Evanston Boy Scout Troop 3.
Volunteers are needed to help set up the serving line at 3 p.m. on Nov. 1 and to perform various tasks during the event. A sign-up sheet is posted in the Clubroom; others may contact Greg Wilson at 224-381-5010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
