Over 600 Served!

 
On February 21st we hosted our 22nd Annual Free Pancake Breakfast and Blood Drive and it was an incredible success.
 
Over 600 Pancake Breakfasts were served thanks to our numerous volunteers, incredible performers and local citizens.  We also collected 58 pints of blood thanks to a great response from regular donors, breakfast attendees and publicity from local organizations.  For those that are not already familiar, 58 pints of blood can save up to 174 lives!!  We will be uploading numerous pictures from the event to our website soon, so please check them out. 
 
We sent out a detailed thank you letter last month to those involved, but for anyone that did not see it or would like anther copy just email me and I would be happy to forward it on.  Briefly though, I would like to mention some of this year's highlights.
 
 - Incredible performances by Legacy Dance Studio, OFHS Choir, Arbor Park Middle School's Beethoven's Arny,4th & 5th grade Choir from Kerkstra and Foster, the Jack Hille Middle School Jazz Band, and Pockets the Clown.  Dee De the Clown, Linda Baxter and Danielle Brown were amazing with all of the kids as well filling the crowd with painted faces and balloons.
 
 - The entire Rotary Club of Oak Forest, along with volunteers from other local clubs, had their hands in making this a huge success, some were even in the batter ;) 
 
 - Almost $600 in donations were made at the door and the OFHS Interact club raised $360 through their 50/50 raffle.
 
 - We unveiled out newly designed Club Brochure and it was met with great response from everyone that day.
 
Thank you again to everyone for making this event the best ever!
