Pancake Day Is Back! Duluth Lions Club Annual Fundraiser Returns In May
After cancellations and postponements because of COVID, Pancake Day is coming back to the DECC.
Pancake Day is one of the biggest fundraisers for the Lions Club, and this year is the 63rd year. The Pancake Day 2022 is scheduled for May 5th from 6:00 am to 7:30 pm in Pioneer Hall. You can buy advanced tickets from some of the Lions Club Members.
Larry Winner (2022 Pancake Day Co-Chair) said in a press release that they are hoping to serve 10,000 people and raise over $100,000. If you want to save money buy your tickets early for $8.00 or just $10.00 at the door. The price includes all the pancakes that you can eat along with sausage, orange juice or milk, and coffee.
Children 4 and under accompanied by parents are free. Tickets can be purchased from any Duluth Lions Club member who should be wearing his or her “Ask me About May 5th” button.
One of my favorite things is buying extra sausages because they are the best sausages I have ever had. Pancakes and everything else is top-notch, but the sausages are the best, so I usually purchase many of them and take them home later.
Lions Club says this year they are offering gluten-free pancakes. Free Parking compliments of Waddell & Reed. So there is not excuse for not coming down and supporting. Plus, if you come in the morning you can take advantage of the alternate toppings booth.
