Big doings in Downtown Burbank today. Kicking things off, the 51st annual Burbank Community YMCA Pancake Breakfast. This is chance to enjoy a great breakfast of flapjacks, sausage, fruit, juice, and coffee, while helping a good cause. The event is a fundraiser for youth programs at the Burbank “Y”. Also for the third straight year, the Burbank YMCA Service Club will donate a new van to help transport children.
“Our goal is to replace the Burbank YMCA’s three 15-passenger vans with four 12-passenger vans,” said JC Holt, Burbank Community YMCA president & CEO, in a news release. “Thanks to the ongoing generosity of the Y Service Club, we are just one vehicle away from completing our new fleet. ”
The pancake breakfast fundraiser runs 7:30-11:30 a.m. today in the Ray Sence Room of the Burbank “Y” 321 E. Magnolia Boulevard. Tickets are $5 each. Kids under 5 eat for free.
