Rotary Club of Spring Hill Florida Pancake Fundraiser April 2016

Rotary Club of Spring Hill Florida Pancake Fundraiser April 2016


Today my Rotary Club of Spring Hill Florida held its second successful pancake breakfast fundraiser that was hosted by Applebee's Restaurant on County Line Road in Spring Hill Florida! 

Doors opened at 8 am and in two hours we served about 300 or so people with coffee, juice, and pancake platters!  None of our Rotary members work in the restaurant business so getting organized and getting used to serving kept us on our feet but we also had a lot of fun doing it.

Luckily, we had some great help from members of the Springstead High School Interact Club - the Student organization of Rotary!  Without these students and Interact members, we could not have done it!

Last but not least, the manager of Applebee's Dawn Davis and her crew were on hand to cook and guide us along in the kitchen.  We are very grateful for their generosity in donating their time and willingness to help the community. 

The proceeds from this fundraiser will support the various community projects of the Rotary Club of Spring Hill, Florida including our scholarship programs.

I remember the rotary club of Fargo ND's pancake feeds and they were HUGE. Seems to me they needed sever hundred volunteers to feed thousands Silvia Dukes PA, REALTOR, CRS, CIPS, SRES

George Souto yes, we were quite busy.  Thankfully, the members of our club always participate in all our efforts and the help of the Interact students was phenomenal.  

Bob "RealMan" Timm we are still far away from feeding thousands and would definitely have to rethink our venue and strategy for that!

While I was out doing errands this morning, I came across a church that was holding a pancake fundraiser.  It was really hard for me to not stop, but I'd already had breakfast.

Good morning Silvia. Nice shout out for this fundraiser, always great when there is food involved. I'm sure it will be well attended.

Rotary Clubs do great work. What a great support group for the community and so many benefit by way of volunteerism. 300 mouths to feed in that short time span is incredible! I'm sure there was a lot of work to do and everyone must have been exhausted, but proud of their work.
