Dance Marathon Pancake Dinner Fundraiser
November 1, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
From 4-8 p.m. Nov. 1, the WIU Dance Marathon will host it annual pancake dinner at the Macomb American Legion, 221 E. Washington St., as part of the organization’s year-round effort to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. The year-long event culminates March 30, 2019, with the 12-hour Dance Marathon, which honors the 12-hour shifts of doctors and nurses, as well as children who are unable to stand.
The “breakfast for dinner” event includes all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage and orange juice. Tickets are $5 per person in advance via square.com/store/wiudm (receipt can be used as ticket, or ticket can be picked up at the Office of Student Activities after purchase) or $7 at the door. Advance tickets can also be purchased by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
