LAURINBURG — The Scottish Pines Rehabilitation and Nursing Center will offer “a short stack for a tall cause” Saturday morning in support of Relay for Life.
The center’s first annual all-you-can-eat Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser will be held from 8-11 a.m. at 620 Johns Road.
Tickets are $5 per person for a syrupy breakfast including plain, blueberry and chocolate chip pancakes, sausage, bacon and a variety of juices and “diabetic-friendly” options.
“We’re just trying to do our part to support Relay for Life,” said Ashley Coble, director of admissions at the center. “We love helping out with the community and doing fundraisers to help raise money for good causes and help fight against cancer.”
The “Kilt Kickers” team, staff members at the center, will host the fundraiser this weekend, along with the center’s dietary department.
“We have our facility chef that will be doing the cooking,” said Margaret Dickerson, executive director at the center. “Our leadership team will help serve and greet people as they come in.”
“Everyone likes pancakes,” Coble said. “We’re hoping this becomes an annual thing.”
She plans for about 200 or more people to show their support at the fundraiser. Coble said the center usually has a “good crowd to come up and support the facility and the community” and looks forward to socializing, enjoying a hot breakfast and relaxing with guest and the informal event.
Although the center is involved with many local charities such as the American Red Cross and United Way, Coble said that volunteering and fundraising for Relay for Life is just another way the center tries to be involved in the community.
