Published:

The Kent Lions Club is getting ready to flip thousands of pancakes at the 58th annual pancake breakfast to be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 3 in the cafeteria of Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent.

The Lions, assisted by Delta Gamma Sorority, will serve an all-you-can-eat breakfast of pancakes and sausage.

Tickets are available for adults at $5 pre-sale or $6 at the door. Tickets are $2 for children under 10 years. To purchase tickets, see any Lion Club member or call Wayne Wilson at 330-673-0769 or 330-678-8032.

Proceeds from the pancake breakfast will fund the Kent Lions sight projects such as: provide eye exams and glasses for local residents; donations to fund Ohio Eye Research, Pilot Dog Program, American Council for the Blind, American Diabetes Association, the Cleveland Eye Bank, and the Cleveland Sight Center.

Providing eye care to local residents is the main philanthropy of the Kent Lions Club.

Walmart and Kent Optometric have partnered with the Lions offering eye care and glasses to area residents without means for such services.
