12-Year-Old's Pancake Event at Applebee's Raises $2,125 for Mission

Sadie Farmer, 12, of Roscoe, planned and hosted a pancake breakfast to benefit the Mission on Jan. 4, with the help of the East State Street Applebee's restaurant. For two hours that morning, the restaurant served pancakes, bacon and a beverage for $5. Then, $4 from each breakfast sold went to the mission, along with donations from customers. The event raised $2,125, which Sadie presented to the Mission's Development Director, Chris Eldridge.

Here's a Rockford Register Star story, written before the event.

Big thanks to Sadie, her family, her friends from Stephen Mack Middle School, the staff at Applebee's, and all who came and ate pancakes Jan. 4. This is a great, generous gift!
