Flapjack Give Back Sept. 17 to benefit your local United Way
Thu, 09/17/2015 - 9:14am
Eat breakfast for dinner this evening and you will be giving to a worthy cause.
Five celebrity chefs will have some pancake specialities ready for consumption, today, Sept. 17, at the “Flapjack Give Back” for the 2016 United Way of Screven County campaign kickoff.
The evening event that supports the local United Way will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Sylvania.
The reigning champion Rachel Thompson of the Bank of Newington will try to retain her trophy against some talented competition in chefs Andy Clifton of Queensborough National Bank And Trust; “Mrs. Kat” Ponder, school resource officer with the Screven County Sheriff’s Office; Screven County Middle School music teacher Matthew Kersey; and A&T Smokehouse owner/cook Willie Mingle.
Thompson, who won last year’s United Way campaign kickoff Waffle-Off, and the other chefs will have creative pancakes to consume.
For $5 per person, you get those special pancakes along with sausage, grits and a beverage.
Patrons also can fill the “tip” money jar of their favorite chef.
Advance $5 tickets are available at Queensborough National Bank And Trust, who is sponsoring the event; Bank of Newington; Sylvania Telephone; and United Way office.
Tickets also will be sold at the door.
People can sit down and eat at the church or take a to-go container with the tasty food items.
While the meal will be very tasty, individuals also can register to win in two different opportunity drawings.
A drawing the evening of the pancake fundraiser will have Yeti items including decals and a 20-ounce tumbler. The tickets are $1 each. This drawing will be conducted at the event.
Also a drawing will be held for a Yeti 45 cooler. The tickets for this drawing also are $1, but the drawing for this item will be done on Oct. 3 at the annual Between Two Rivers Bike Ride which begins at the Sylvania First Baptist Church.
The Yeti cooler has been donated by Possum Eddy.
All the money raised from the kickoff and the drawings go toward the United Way of Screven County’s campaign’s goal of $75,000.
The annual Between Two Rivers Bike Ride has bicycle routes of 5, 12, 30, 62 and 100 miles that are mapped out for Saturday, Oct. 3, throughout Screven County.
To sign up to ride a bicycle, visit the United Way website of www.screvencountyuw.org.
This year a “Battle of the Businesses” has been added to generate teams from local businesses to ride in the October event.
