The biannual Civitan breakfast fundraiser was off to a good start Tuesday morning, according to “head chef” Harold Pruitt.
“We fed about 150 people this morning, which is close to what we usually do - so that’s good,” said President Richard Martin. “We’re on track for another successful breakfast.”
Pruitt, and other volunteers, will be serving up grits, toast, bacon, pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee, for $7 per plate, for one more day on Wednesday morning.
“We’ll be back out there from 6-9 a.m. on Wednesday morning, and hope to serve at least 250 people,” said Pruitt.
That’s the magic number to ensure this fundraiser’s success.
The Civitan breakfast fundraisers are the main drivers behind their charitable donations. Proceeds from the breakfasts go to organizations like: Samaritan Colony; Leath Library; Our Daily Bread Food Ministry; Rockingham Soup Kitchen; McLaurin Center; Cordova School and Richmond County Special Olympics.
“Except the contributions we make to the Boys and Girls Home and Victory Junction, all the money we raise goes to organizations in the county,” said Martin.”So we hope to see everyone come out and show their support for our local organizations on Wednesday morning.”
