Pancake supper serves good cause

We don’t know what’s on your dinner menu for Friday night , but we’ve got a suggestion — how about a big stack of pancakes?

Sure, we realize that you may not typically eat pancakes for dinner, but it’s been our experience that well-made flapjacks are a treat whenever you want to serve them.

Why wait for breakfast?

We knew we could whet your appetite, and thanks to the Denton Breakfast Kiwanis, you can eat your fill on Friday. The club is sponsoring its annual pancake supper and silent auction from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 2255 N. Bonnie Brae St. in Denton.

Denton’s Candy Haven and Kolache Haven are assisting with the event, which will feature all-you-can-eat pancakes at a bargain price (tickets for adults are $10 at the door or $8 if purchased online in advance, and $3.50 for kids 3-12, according to information posted at

The annual dinner is always a fun event as well. The Kiwanis have lined up several celebrity chefs to flip pancakes, and your stack could be prepared by Denton County Judge Mary Horn, Denton County Tax Assessor-Collector Michelle French, Denton County Sheriff William Travis, New Life Church pastor Jim Mann or Paul Chandler of Meridian Bank. Those are among the folks who are scheduled to participate.

There will also be entertainment, including the Immaculate Conception Catholic School Cherub Choir.

Perhaps the tastiest part of the dinner is the fact that the event benefits a good cause. Proceeds will help provide low-income children with backpacks, school supplies, clothing and shoes through Interfaith Ministries’ Apple Tree Project.

This project provides school supplies for a lot of deserving kids, helping them start out the new school year on equal footing by making sure they have the items they need to do well in class.

Last year’s pancake supper raised $15,000, which allowed those involved to help 1,400 children, organizers said, and the goal this year is to raise $20,000 to aid 1,800 youngsters.

You can help event organizers reach or surpass their goal this year, and all that’s required is to purchase a ticket or two, enjoy some great-tasting pancakes and share an enjoyable evening with members of the Denton Breakfast Kiwanis Club and their team of celebrity chefs.

And don’t forget the silent auction — organizers promise plenty of terrific items, and you don’t want to miss out on any good buys.

So, why not join the Denton Breakfast Kiwanis for the annual pancake supper and silent auction? It’s one of the best ways we know to help make a difference in the lives of a lot of deserving kids.

Tickets are available at DATCU and online at Tickets also will be available at the door.
