Goshen holds 50th annual Salvation Army Pancake Breakfast

Posted:

The Goshen Salvation Army hosted a huge fundraising event, and celebrated an incredible milestone at the same time.  Friday was the 50th year of the Salvation Army Pancake Breakfast.

Major Allen Hanton with the Salvation Army says nearly all the service organizations in town helped to bring the event to life this year.  The mayor was also on hand to greet hungry diners.  Several high school choirs entertained guests during parts of the day as well.

Major Hanton says they don't have to send bell-ringers out as early as some other areas, because of the huge community support for the pancake breakfast.  They hope to raise close to $70,000 and expect to serve around 7,500 pancakes on Friday.  All the proceeds go to funding the Salvation Army's Christmas programs.
