Last year, money raised at the Kiwanis Club of Mukilteo’s annual Pancake Breakfast created 17 scholarships worth more than $14,000 combined for seniors at Kamiak, Mariner and ACES high schools, as well as Sno-Isle Tech Center.

The club hopes to outdo itself during this year’s breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 11 at Olympic View Middle School.

Money raised also supports local youth programs and other fundraising efforts, such as the Lighthouse Festival Salmon Bake.

“It is a great way to support a good cause while enjoying a very tasty breakfast in your own community,” club member Tom Nielsen said.

The event features a hearty breakfast of eggs, sausage, ham, coffee, juice and, of course, those delicious pancakes. All the while, students from Mukilteo elementary, middle school and high school choirs and bands will provide entertainment.

This year’s raffle is billed as “Biggest Raffle in Town” with well-stocked baskets to peruse and potentially take home.

Scholarship applications for 2017 are currently available in the Career Centers in Mukilteo School District high schools. They can also be found online at mukilteokiwanis.wordpress.com. Completed forms are due by April 28.
