Flippin’ flapjacks for a cause

The staff of Hale Hughesman Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors will be flipping pancakes this Friday morning

The staff of Hale Hughesman Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors will be flipping pancakes this Friday morning.

The Sidney firm will hold its fourth annual pancake breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. outside their office at 9768 Third St., close to Starbucks Coffee.

Kristen van Dinther, a chartered accountant for the company, says the event is a fundraiser for the Sidney Lions Food Bank.

“We want to raise awareness and raise money for the food bank,” she said, adding it’s the second year in a row they have made the food bank their cause.

The first two years of the breakfast fundraiser were to help local people with health issues.

This Friday, there will be tents set up in the Hale Hughesman parking lot and collection bins available for non-perishable food donations for the food bank.

Van Dinther said they are expecting 200 to 250 people to turn out, based on past events. If everyone eats an average of three pancakes, she said they will be flipping around 600 of them that morning.

The event is being supported by generous donors, said van Dinther, who will be supplying the coffee, food as well as other supplies. Van Dinther said their support is greatly appreciated and helps make the fundraiser a success.
