"Flapjacks for Families" to benefit local families and children - Dec. 10th

Area families are invited to meet their favorite Frozen characters as local celebrity waiters compete for tips at Irene Wortham Center’s fundraiser Flapjacks for Families. Proceeds from the breakfast directly benefit local families and children.

The Irene Wortham Learning Center provides high quality education and care for children ages six-weeks to pre-k, with and without developmental challenges. The Center currently serves more than 80 children, with 95% living at or below the poverty level.  About half of the children enrolled have significant disabilities.

Local celebrity servers will compete for your tips and a chance to win the “golden spatula” at Flapjacks for Families. Additionally, Frozen characters, Anna, Elsa and Olaf will be joining in the fun!  All of the proceeds raised and toys collected at the event go to families served by Irene Wortham Center.  The breakfast is sponsored by Cane Creek Pharmacy.  Breakfast is $10 per person or FREE with a new, unwrapped toy of the same or greater value.  Kids eat for $5.

For many people, the holiday season means cherished memories with family, gift giving and festive food.  However, for families economically challenged, the holidays can be especially tough.  Funds and toys collected at Flapjacks for Families will mean a brighter season for those less fortunate.  Enjoy pancakes, bacon, juice and coffee all the while making the holidays joyous for those in need.
