The annual Sunflower Diversified Services pancake dinner promises to offer good food and entertainment for everyone who attends, said Connie Oetken, director of development. The event is scheduled for 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, at the Prince of Peace Parish Center, 4100 Broadway.
"Chris Cakes is always popular, not only for the menu, but also for flipping the pancakes quite a distance," Oetken said. "And this year the Encore Sound deejay will entertain, while Scott Donovan from Eagle Radio performs during a live remote."
The pancake dinner is one of Sunflower’s annual fundraisers for infants, toddlers and adults with delays and disabilities. All proceeds stay in the non-profit agency’s five-county service area in central Kansas.
"Those who participate can be assured that the money we raise stays right here to help their neighbors," Oetken said. "It helps finance services and adaptive equipment that are not covered by insurance or tax dollars."
For example, proceeds are used for wheelchair modifications, communications devices, and help with medical and dental bills.
The dinner includes all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage for $5. Tickets are now available at Sunflower by calling 620-792-1325.
Sunflower, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, provides services in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties.
