The cost to attend will likely be between $4 and $5, event co-chair Grace Whiteaker said. Proceeds from the breakfast will go to the Hazelwood Elementary PTSA, and proceeds from the book fair will go to benefit the school library.

The pancake breakfast will showcase classic breakfast foods and drinks, including sausage, fruit cups, Starbucks coffee, tea, hot chocolate, orange juice and all-you-can-eat pancakes. The school also provides the breakfast for free for about 30 families with students at the school.

Event co-chair Lisa Tintinger said the event usually brings in about 300-400 people.

“It’s just a fun community event,” she said. “You get to see your neighbors and support the school at the same time.”
