The American Legion Post 42 will conduct its 33rd annual pancake breakfast from7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, November. 10th, 2018 at the Legion Hall at 1030 Central St., Evanston. Advance tickets are just $7 ($9 at-the-door) and children 6-or-under eat free.
Proceeds go to carefully selected charities serving both veterans and families-in-need in Evanston and beyond. More than $54,000 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.
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 can also participate in a 50/50 raffle with proceeds going to in-care veterans. Raffle tickets are $1 each and can be purchased at the clubroom now and during the breakfast after which winners will be announced.
