Kiwanis to host pancake breakfast and spring race

Kiwanians Dale Smith and Andrew Mangels mix up pancake batter at last year's breakfast.

The Westlake Kiwanis will hold their spring pancake breakfast on Sunday, April 9. The breakfast will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Westlake High School cafeteria, 27830 Hilliard Blvd. The breakfast is being held in conjunction with the Hermes Westlake Spring Fever run to benefit LakeShore Day Camp, Westlake Kiwanis and Westlake PTA.

Breakfast includes all the pancakes you can eat! Plus sausage, orange juice, milk, coffee and tea. Tickets are $6. Children 6 and under eat for free.

This year, as a "Kiwanis Young Children Priority One" project, the Westlake Kiwanis will donate a portion of the proceeds from the breakfast to the LakeShore Day Camp, a nonprofit camp for children with special learning needs, including mental and physical challenges, learning disabilities, autism, ADHD and more.

The remaining proceeds will go to promote various causes benefiting children throughout the Westlake community such as holiday food baskets for the disadvantaged, student scholarships, the Westlake High School Key Club, Builders Club and Aktion Club, and Relay for Life and the Westlake PTA.

The Westlake Spring Fever is a 2-mile or 4-mile run kicking off at 9 a.m. from Westlake High. Race registration is $25 in advance. Discounted tickets for the pancake breakfast of $5 are available to race registrants. To sign up, visit
