Annual Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser Cooks Up Family Fun
The 4th Annual YMCA Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser in June was a huge success! The Van Nuys Airport volunteer group Team LAWA, in collaboration with the Mid Valley Family YMCA and LAFD Station 114, served pancakes and a side of family fun inside the Station 114 hangar to more than 200 guests at this year’s fundraiser breakfast. After a serving of pancakes and sausage, attendees were also invited to participate in family-friendly activities including a toss game, a balsa wood and candy airplane station, a Legacy of Van Nuys Airport historical film viewing area, tours of the LAFD Air Operations facility and chances to win some great raffle prizes.
The event raised over $2,500 for the YMCA and helps to provide area youth and families with scholarships to participate in YMCA programs that they may otherwise be unable to afford. “The Mid Valley Y Pancake Breakfast is one of our favorite events,” said Diana Sanchez, VNY Public & Community Relations Director. “We bring together the community, Y members, VNY staff and firefighters for delicious pancakes, family fun and a good cause.”
