This giveaway is now closed. Congrats Patricia T!
A couple of weeks ago, a local restaurant chain hosted a free pancake day to raise money for an established children’s charity. I don’t typically go out to breakfast unless it’s a Saturday and the hubby is around, however, I felt like it was an important cause and thought it would make for a teachable moment with my son.
Perkins, a popular restaurant chain in the midwest, Florida, and Pennsylvania is hosting a free pancake day on Monday, March 21st to raise money for Give Kids The World (GKTW). This local, non-profit organization provides week-long vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families at a “storybook” retreat in Central Florida. Every year 27,000 children are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and this organization seeks to improve the quality of some of these children’s lives. For 25 years, GKTW has served over 100,000 US and international families, providing them with a week-long vacation that includes accommodations at the GKTW Village, meals, donated attraction tickets, and more.
Perkins Restaurant & Bakery has supported the organization for 20 years and serves more than 200,000 free meals each year at the Gingerbread House Restaurant, located in the heart of the Give Kids The World Village. 420 US and Canadian restaurants will participate in Perkins Pancake Day and will serve guests their made-from-scratch buttermilk pancakes. Perkins would like guests to consider donating to GKTW. To find a participating location, just visit their website or Facebook page.
