Nothing short of amazing!  (and uber busy)  That's the way to describe this year's Harold's Flippin' Flapjack Fiasco. I am so humbled by the immense support that Carlton County gives through event donations, volunteer hours, energy and monetary donations for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  YOU make such a difference!


The words "thank you" just doesn't seem like enough.  Even when I say it with hug, it just doesn't do justice for everything put forth for the continued research and children that are fighting cancer at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I am so proud to say I am from Carlton County.  The awe and amazed look on the faces of people I tell about the three Harold's Fiascos and the amount of money you help raise is priceless.  I wish I could take video of each and every one and share with you the gratitude I see in the faces of the families we help.

We didn't think we could do it again, but just like last year, THIS year's Flippin' Flapjack Fiasco surpassed all others  with a grand total of 586 people served 65 gallons of pancake batter mixed and the amount of money raised, $4200.00!!!!!!!!!!

There are SO many people to recognize this blog could go on and on and on....first and foremost, thank you to all who attended and helped us reach our total monetary donation this year.  Harold, Kevin and all the volunteers, not just guys anymore, your dedication and commitment to the cause (and each other) is endearing, you make my heart happy!

To Savanna Pallets, JJ and Sara Johnson and family from Family Tradition and John and Kim Lind from B&B Market, your donations allowed 100% of the money raised to be given to the kids of St. Jude.  Many blessings to you for your generosity.
