(La Porte, IN) - La Porte residents looking for something to do Saturday morning are invited to enjoy breakfast with their local firefighters.
The City of La Porte Fire Department is hosting a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon on April 30 at Fire Station 1 at 809 West 18th Street. Tickets include all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, and eggs and an entry into their $100 cash giveaway, said La Porte Fire Chief Andy Snyder.
He said that the department would also be selling $1 raffle tickets for various prizes donated by local businesses, including memberships, concert tickets, and gift baskets.
Snyder said all proceeds from the breakfast and raffle would benefit the Arnold J. Devereaux Scholarship Fund, which awards scholarships to eight to ten graduating seniors from local high schools each year.
“The pancake breakfast is a great way for our team to get to know the residents we serve a bit better while also benefitting a great cause. We are proud to be part of this community and hope to see a lot of hungry people on Saturday morning,” Snyder said.
Members of the fire department will also be giving out free carbon monoxide detectors, courtesy of the Lindsey O’Brien Kesling Wishing Tree Foundation. These are available to the first 40 interested attendees.
Tickets for the breakfast are $8 and can be purchased at Station #1 before and on the morning of the event. Children 4 and under eat free. For more information, call the fire department at (219) 362-3456.
