Food and entertainment are on the menu again for the annual Sunflower Diversified Services pancake dinner. Tickets are now available for the event, which is scheduled for 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19 at the Prince of Peace Parish Center, 4100 Broadway, Great Bend.
“The pancake flipping is always popular,” said Connie Oetken, Sunflower director of development. “Chris Cakes and DJ Cain are enthusiastic, and share their food and fun during our annual dinner.
“Most important, though, we will be raising money for people in central Kansas with developmental disabilities and delays,” Oetken noted. “All the money we raise stays right here in our local communities and directly helps our neighbors.”
Proceeds are used for wheelchair modifications, communications devices, and help with medical and dental bills, Oetken explained. “These are among many items that are not covered by insurance or tax revenues. This fundraiser helps us fill in some of the gaps.”
The dinner includes all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage for $5.
Anyone who wants tickets or more information may contact Oetken by calling 620-792-1325.
Sunflower, which got its start 47 years ago, provides services for infants, toddlers and adults in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties.
