If you’re craving pancakes*, get your Saturday morning fix at the all-you-can-eat Des Moines “I Have a Dream” Foundation pancake breakfast! There’s also a raffle with some awesome sweet prizes (facial, restaurant gift certificates, car detailing, etc.) and all the money goes to a great cause. We love this fundraiser because the parents of the kids we serve plan it and staff it themselves.
*Pancakes, cereal, strawberries and ice cream have been my #1 hankerings these past eight months. Bonus: If you come to the pancake breakfast, you can be one of the people who tells me in person how huge I look! Then I will glare at you and make you buy a raffle ticket as penance.
If you can’t make it, but are interested in contributing to “I Have a Dream,” we’re part of the Birdies for Charity program again this year. You can make an easy online pledge of $25 or more, or can pledge per birdie. This is an awesome program because our organization receives 125% of the funds raised, through a “bonus bucks” program.
