Alcoa High School had the sweet smell of rich syrup in late April as the Alcoa Kiwanis took over the cafeteria for their Alcoa Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast.
This was the 18th annual event for the Alcoa Kiwanis Foundation, and even a slumping economy didn’t dampen enthusiasm for the $5 breakfast ticket. Alcoa Kiwanis Club secretary/treasurer Pat Marshall said the group cleared $18,000 at the breakfast. The economy didn’t hurt this year’s event, she said. “We had more attend this year than we have had in that past.” she said.
Marshall was very appreciative of Mayfield Dairy and IHOP for their support of the event. “Mayfield Dairy provided all of our milk and our juice and beverages, and IHOP provided training, all the pancake supplies and all the sausages.”
Marshall also was pleased with the number of club members who showed up to volunteer. “Out of 71 members, 57 participated,” she said. “It is a very good ratio.”
All money raised benefits East Tennessee children through the Foundation’s contributions and scholarship offerings.
