Flapjack feed kicks off annual United Way fundraising campaign

August 20, 2013 

The United Way of Treasure Valley kicks off its annual fundraising campaign with a flapjack feed Thursday.

The breakfast soiree takes place from 7:30 to 10 a.m. in the Boise Centre Plaza (aka The Grove) in Downtown Boise at 850 Front St.

On the menu: Pancakes and other traditional breakfast favorites, along with healthier options like rosemary red-skinned potatoes and fresh fruit.

For admission to the flapjack feed, United Way is suggesting a $5 donation at the event, but guests can decide to give more or less.

The event also includes raffle off dozens of donated prizes. A 3-minute Albertsons shopping spree worth up to $1,000 is one of the prizes, along with a year’s supply of Dutch Bros. coffee and a gas grill donated by Intermountain Gas Co. Raffle tickets will be available at the event: one ticket for $5 and five for $20. The full prize list other event details are available online.

The flapjack feed is a starting point to United Way’s Community Impact Campaign, which facilitates payroll-deduction giving opportunities at more than 300 companies throughout the valley. All money donated to United Way’s Community Fund stays in the Treasure Valley to provide opportunities for individuals and families to succeed. This nonprofit organization supports several programs and projects throughout the valley, including the P16 Caldwell Education Project and Bank On Treasure Valley.
