Happening now: West Seattle Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast 2011

With a crew of volunteer pancake chefs including Michael LaFranchi (and his holiday-spirit apron), the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle is filling the Masonic Hall this morning for its 65th annual Community Pancake Breakfast:

…and that’s only half the room! There’s still time to get there before 11; $6 adults/$3 kids for pancakes, ham, and orange juice, with proceeds benefiting Kiwanis community programs including research into childhood cancer. Plus they are collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots. In addition to volunteers from the Kiwanis, high-school clubs, and Scouts, West Seattle Hi-Yu volunteers and junior royalty are on hand too, and you can buy one of their gorgeous glass fundraising ornaments:

And a very special guest … in the background of this shot featuring Hi-Yu Junior Princess Amanda, Queen Thea, and Princess ElenaSanta!

40th/Edmunds – the canopies and signs point the way to the entrance.

    Just got back from this great event. We’ve gone every year since our daughter was born (she’s eight now!), and it has become a wonderful family tradition. Well done, Kiwanis!

    Great job! I have been to many a pancake breakfast and I will say they have their down to an art and is extremely well run. We went last year for the first time and were reminded about this years breakfast last week at the Farmer’s Market. I’m glad we went.

    I also love that they have santa there. My daughter is 2.5 so still a afraid of the big guy without mommy right there. It’s a nice alternative to a mall santa and being able to ease into things.

Sorry, comment time is over.
