For those of you living in the Alameda County area who like to support good causes and also love pancakes, then going to a breakfast on Saturday, Dec. 9 at Newark Community Center might be the perfect event to feed your soul.
The Newark Community Center is hosting the non-profit Drivers for Survivors on Dec. 9 from 8 a.m. to noon for the 2nd Annual Holiday Pancake Breakfast with Santa. Drivers for Survivors is a non-profit that pairs volunteer drivers with cancer patients who need rides to their medical appointments. This event is a fundraiser and an anniversary to celebrate its founding over five years ago.
According to Drivers for Survivors' press release, Castro Valley Performing Arts will be giving performances, there will be a silent auction and raffle, and, of course Santa will be in attendance! Food is being sponsored by the Newark IHOP and McDonald's. Newark police and the Alameda County fire department will be flipping the pancakes. And Calif. state Sen. Bob Wieckowski and some Newark city officials will be there as well.
The kids will be able to get their faces painted, and Jewelry by Design (a Newark, Calif. jeweler) should be have items available for auction.
