Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser at Applebee's

Save the date and spread the word…

Pack 825 will host a pancake breakfast at Applebee’s on March 8th.  Applebee’s will provide the food and the Cub Scouts will work the front of the restaurant serving pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee.  It’s a fun opportunity for boys of all ages.  Last year the boys had a blast!

Tickets are $7 each ($5 goes to the Pack).  Customers may pre-purchase a ticket or buy one at the door.  The money earned from the breakfast will be split between the Pack and OUMC (our sponsor).   The church will use the money for their discretionary fund (to help people with emergency one-time needs – food, gas, bus ticket, etc.).

Tickets will be given to the cub scouts at the Pack meeting on February 18th.  The goal is for each scout to sell at least 10 tickets so SAVE THE DATE and start SPREADING THE WORD!

Applebee’s is located at 5340 McFarland Dr, Durham, NC 27707 (off 15/501, near Home Depot and Kohl’s).

Please contact Susan Jackson with questions.
