It’s that time again! Time for everyone to wake up on a Saturday and head over to the Sanibel Community House, where the Sanibel Captiva Lions Club will treat you and your friends or family to a delicious breakfast.

The club is inviting everyone to its semi-annual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, Sept. 3 from 8 a.m. until noon. All proceeds from the event will go to support LARC, Inc.

“The islanders are warm and generous people that can be counted on to support and encourage the best in their community,” said Roger Bradley, Executive Director at LARC. “The Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club has jumped in with both feet to help people with disabilities live a productive and satisfying life. We’re all grateful to the islanders!”

Since 1954, LARC, Inc. has been dedicated to meeting the needs of people with developmental disabilities and their families. Their mission is to promote and provide opportunities in the community for these Lee County residents and help them achieve an independent, dignified and responsible lifestyle.

The Sanibel-Captiva Lions invite you to join in this special event, held at 2173 Periwinkle Way. There will be pancakes, bacon, and your choice of beverage. The donation for adults is $5 and children under 5 are free. For those who would prefer to enjoy their breakfast at home with their families or on the go, carry out will be available.

“The Lions’ Club has been very successful with this event in the past and we are hoping to see everyone in our community turn out to eat some great pancakes and support another great cause,” said Tom Hoover, past president of the Sanibel-Captiva Lions Club. “We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Community House next weekend and hope they bring big appetites.”

The event is sponsored by Bailey’s General Store, Sun Harvest Citrus, Lily & Co. Jewelers, Island Pharmacy, Island Graphics, Barefoot Charley’s, Sanibel Air Conditioning and Sanctuary Island Electric, Sanibel-Captiva Community Bank and Wayne Wiles Floor Coverings.
