Pancake breakfast for Evanston’s neediest families

American Legion Post 42 will conduct its 28th annual pancake breakfast from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1, at the Legion Hall at 1030 Central St. in Evanston.

Advance tickets are just $7 ($9 at-the-door) and children 6-or-under eat free.   

Proceeds go to carefully selected charities serving families in need throughout the Evanston community.

More than $42,000 has been raised in recent years to provide food, clothing and toys to struggling families during the Holiday Season.

Last year’s recipients included 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 syrup, sausages and eggs cooked-to-order. Coffee is served in “bottomless” cups along with milk and orange juice.

Guests also can win raffle prizes with proceeds going to in-care veterans.

There is parking at the post and in the Chandler Center lot west of the CTA’s Central Street station. For more information call Post 42 at 847-475-9076.
