American Legion Post 42 will conduct its 34th annual pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Legion Hall, 1030 Central St. in Evanston. 

Door admission is $9 and children 6-and-under eat free.  Discounted tickets available online.

Proceeds go to select charities serving both veterans and families-in-need in Evanston and beyond. More than $55,000 has been raised in recent years to provide food, clothing and toys to organizations such as Connections for the Homeless, Fisher House at Hines VA Hospital, the National Emergency Fund and Evanston Boy Scout Troop 3.

Breakfast features buttermilk pancakes with real maple syrup, sausages, and eggs cooked-to-order. Coffee is served in “bottomless” cups along with milk and orange juice. Guests can also participate in a 50/50 raffle with proceeds going to in-care veterans. Raffle tickets are $1 each. They can be purchased anytime at the clubroom  or during the breakfast, after which winners will be announced.

Volunteers are needed to help set up the serving line at 3p.m. Friday, Nov. 1  and to perform various tasks during the event.  A sign-up sheet is posted in the Clubroom, or contact Greg Wilson at 224-381-5010 or
