Looking for an activity this weekend that is sure to provide fun for the whole family?
The Kiwanis Club of La Jolla is hosting their annual pancake breakfast, this Saturday, July 27th from 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM at the La Jolla Recreation Center.
The Kiawanis Club was started in 1920 and is a diverse group of members of the community ranging from business to military to government. Their goal is to hold events that service the community and raise money through its events such as the pancake breakfast or their marathon, the La Jolla Half Marathon. They then donate most of the proceeds to charity, especially to charities that benefit children.
Tickets cost $10 each but are free for kids, ages 10 and younger. With this ticket comes an all-you-can-eat breakfast with pancakes and sausages. If you want to purchase your ticket ahead of time, you can purchase them at C&H Photo. You can also buy your tickets at the event.
Not only will there be great food, there will also be a raffle, face painting, pony rides, bounce houses and live music from the Torrey Pines Ramblers!
Stop by the pancake breakfast, enjoy some great food, and support a great cause.
