The Solar Kiwanis Club of Manhattan thanks all who came out on a rainy July 4th morning and enjoyed a pancake breakfast at Pottorf Hall for our annual fundraiser.

The raised money allows our club to support many youth organizations serving the Manhattan area, including Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Flint Hills Breadbasket Backpack Program, Head Start, Royal Kids Camp and Boys and Girls Club. Any pancake products that were not used at our feed were donated to the Manhattan Emergency Shelter.

We received support of several Manhattan businesses in underwriting this fundraiser. The Trust Company of Manhattan provided for the rental of Pottorf Hall, Hiland Dairy provided milk, coffee was provided by Radina’s Coffee, butter was provided by Bluestem Bistro and a gift card was provided by Walmart. Various many more businesses helped with our placemats.

Kiwanis International encourages all Kiwanis Clubs to emphasize supporting youth and youth activities. By the generous support we received at our fundraiser, we will be able to continue to help Manhattan area youth.
