Pancake breakfast benefits Big Brother's, Big Sister's of South Georgia

June 28, 2003

TIFTON - You can't find it on their menu, but pancakes were the item of choice this morning at Applebee's in Tifton.

Fluffy pancakes, bacon and, of course, syrup, were served during Applebee's "Eat a Pancake For a Kid" breakfst fundraiser.  It was all to benefit Big Brother's, Big Sister's of South Georgia.

Big's traded in their day jobs and became servers, all in hopes of making a difference in a child's life.

"We match children who are wanting a positive role model in their life, and so, of course, we know positive role models make good citizens and that's what our goal is," said Christy Saylor, Match Coordinator.

Money raised from today's events will help pay for mentorships.

Big Brother's, Big Sister's of South Georgia has chapters in Valdosta, Tifton, Cordele and Waycross, with plans of an Albany chapter coming soon.
