After many years at the St. Rose Auditorium, the annual Sunflower Diversified Services pancake dinner will be held in a new location. The popular event is set for 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, at the Prince of Peace Parish Center, 4100 Broadway.
"Even though this is a new location, participants can expect the same good food and entertainment provided by Chris Cakes," said Connie Oetken, Sunflower director of development. "Chris Cakes is well known for its enthusiasm while flipping pancakes quite a distance."
DJ Cain and Scott Donovan also will entertain the crowd.
"Every penny of the money we raise will stay in our local communities to help babies, toddlers and adults with developmental disabilities," Oetken said. "Proceeds help Sunflower pay for services and adaptive equipment that are not covered by insurance or tax dollars.
"All of our fundraising events help us fill this gap," Oetken added. "We need to be here when people need wheelchair modifications, communication devices, and help with medical and dental bills. We know we can count on the generosity of central Kansans for this support."
The Sept. 16 dinner includes all-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage for $5. Tickets are now available at Sunflower by calling 620-792-1325.
Sunflower serves babies, toddlers and adults with developmental disabilities in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties.
