What could be better than a stack of hot, fresh, fluffy pancakes for breakfast? Having those pancakes while at the same time helping some very deserving elementary school children in Rapides Parish! A Perfect Fit Foundation will once again host its annual Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser on Thursday, September 20th from 6:30am to 11:00am in the Parish Hall of St. James Episcopal Church, located at 1620 Murray Street in Alexandria (across Bolton Avenue from the Alexandria Police Department). Each short stack of pancakes comes with breakfast sausage, fresh fruit and a beverage. 100% of each $7.00 donation will go directly toward the mission of the Foundation.
A Perfect Fit Foundation was established in 2006 to honor the memory of Jerry Harp, a local shoe salesman who helped the residents of Cenla find a perfect fit of their own for over 50 years. The Foundation provides well-fitted, uniform-approved shoes to underprivileged school children in the Rapides Parish School System, where the need has been identified by the teachers. To date, the Foundation has provided shoes to thousands of deserving students. Through the generous sponsorship of corporate partners and individual donations, 100% of the funds raised by A Perfect Fit Foundation at events like the annual pancake breakfast goes directly towards the purchase of shoes. The Foundation’s funding is managed in partnership with the Central Louisiana Community Foundation.
Tickets for the breakfast are available the day of the event or in advance by calling the Cenla Focus Offices at (318) 442-8277. Orders of 10 or more plates (or equivalent donation) qualify for free delivery in the Alexandria/Pineville area. Can’t make it to the event but still want to support this great cause?
