Menlo Park pancake breakfast

One of the community’s favorite events, the 14th annual Pancake Breakfast will be held on Saturday, October 4 at the Menlo Park Fire District Headquarters at 300 Middlefield Road.

This popular annual event, co-sponsored by the Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula (JLPA•MP), the Menlo Park Fire District, the Stanford Park Hotel, and the Menlo Grill Bistro & Bar, benefits the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation. Volunteers will be flipping pancakes and serving breakfast at the fire station from 7:30 to 11:00 am.

Breakfast will feature pancakes cooked to perfection by the Menlo Park Firefighters, delicious Hobee’s coffee cake and Peet’s Coffee. Junior League volunteers are organizing several fun activities for kids. The Fire District will host a silent auction featuring items such as a visit with “Old Tom,” their antique fire truck, at a birthday party or event, dinner at Menlo Grill Bistro & Bar, and a night stay at the Stanford Park Hotel.

“Families look forward to the Pancake Breakfast and open house at the fire station every year,” said Fire Marshall Jon Johnston of the Menlo Park Fire District. “We are thrilled to again partner with the Junior League and other local community organizations to raise money for this worthy cause.”

“It’s an honor to support the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation in their important work with burn survivors,” said Jan Hickman, JLPA•MP President. “The annual Pancake Breakfast is just one of the many community events and projects made possible in part by the dedicated service of Junior League volunteers.”

Last year’s breakfast raised approximately $8,000 for the Alisa Ann Ruche Burn Foundation, and organizers hope to top that number this year. Proceeds from the event help the foundation provide much-needed programs for burn survivors in California. In 2010, the Foundation worked closely with local hospitals handling burn victims of the San Bruno fire.
