This past Saturday morning between 7 and 10am, over 200 people showed up at Applebees in Boone to eat some great pancakes and support the Boone Kiwanis Club. The event was a huge success as they raised about $4,800 in the second year of working with Applebees. Spokesperson Liz Cornella said Applebees has been great to work with and proceeds from this breakfast will be used to help with children of watauga county and the world. At the local level, the proceeds are distributed to area PTO's March of Dimes, the Children's Playhouse, Community Care Clinic, the Hospitality House and habitat for Humanity. Liz also said the Kiwanis club provides service hours and monetary donations to the Salvation Army and Santa's Toy Box. In addition to all of those great projects, they provide a college scholarship to a local high school graduate each year. liz also explained how they are involved with international health issues.
