Pancakes for a Purpose!

Hi friends,
Whew, we can't believe how quickly this first semester has flown by! We only have two more tournaments left in the fall semester. The team travels to Hastings College this afternoon and then will make a trip to Kearney the first weekend in December.

This year has been absolutely magical. We have an amazing group of kids. But as most of you probably know, budget is always a huge concern for us. We already have several students qualified for the national tournament in April, problem is, we still don't have the tournament paid for. So, we're having Pancakes for a Purpose! On Thursday, December 2nd from 5-7pm, the Pancake Man will be serving all you can eat pancakes and sausage as a fundraiser to send our team to nationals! We'll have a cake walk and other fun games, and trust us, these cakes are delicious! We need to raise $3,500 between now and April, so we are counting on all of our friends and family to consume pancakespancakespancakes so our speech kids can go to nationals, instead of crying in a corner in April! :)
Prices for all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage:

Adults: $7
Children ages 5-10: $5
...Children 4 and under eat for free!

The event will be in Omaha at Royal View Hall. This venue is across the street from Rosenblatt Stadium. Take the 13th street exit (exit 454) toward Stadium/Zoo. Royal View Hall will be at the intersection of 13th and Phelps (your third right). There is limited parking near the building, so it is suggested that people park across the street in the Rosenblatt parking lot.

If you cannot attend the pancake feed, please consider making a donation to the team on our online website. Any amount is appreciated and will make a difference for our students. Also, if you donate on this website, you'll receive a tax-deductible receipt! YAY! Here is the link:
