Pancakes in the park

We just had our 4th annual Pancakes in the Park – a family friendly event at Lake Park in Huntington Beach. It was so much fun!13497948_10101936429047767_4598670326260740526_o

The purpose of the event is to raise money to help send teen moms and their babies to a life-changing summer camp. Hundreds of people came out to support YoungLives!
From all you can eat pancakes and sausage, to delicious fresh-brewed coffee, it was a great way to start the day. The generosity of everyone who came was so encouraging! As with any large event, it took an army of volunteers to put on this event. Volunteers arrived at 6am to start prepping the area, setting up tables and chairs, making coffee and mixing up the pancake batter!

Another fun aspect of the Pancake Breakfast is the Craft Fair!13497626_10101936427860147_1165419966451381090_o This year we had nearly 20 different local vendors who were selling a variety of handmade items. Each of them donated a portion of their proceeds to help send girls to camp!



We are so thankful for all of the volunteers and craft fair vendors who made this event possible! Because of your generosity, we will be sending 7 girls and 3 volunteers to camp later this month! During the week of July 11th, be sure to check our blog and Facebook page for updates from camp!13490823_10101936427510847_4703376318574914966_o
