Pancake Day Raises Over $7500 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County

The University City Kiwanis Club raised more money than ever before for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County through its annual Pancake Day. The amount raised on May 10 was more than $7,500, which means the Kiwanians sold a lot of $6 pancake plates!

The sponsors of the event are Hilton Greenville, Golden Corral and Burger King. Thanks to the generosity of the sponsors and the University City Kiwanis Club, 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County.

“We are delighted that the University City Kiwanis Club works so hard to raise money for the Clubs each and every year,” said Jay Faron, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County. “When their effort brings in a record amount of money, that’s even better!” 

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County is incredibly grateful for the help of the University City Kiwanis Club and other local organizations who support our efforts to serve the children in our community who need our help the most. The $7,000 will go towards the operating budget of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County, which is currently facing a $100,000 shortfall for the year.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County serves more than 1,700 members from six to eighteen years of age. There are five Clubs located throughout Pitt County, including the Jack Minges Club on Fire Tower Road, the Grady White Boats/ER Lewis Family Club in north Greenville, the Jarvis United Methodist Church Club in downtown Greenville, the Dr. Ledyard E. Ross Club in Ayden, and the Club in Farmville. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Pitt County strives to provide quality programs that focus on academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. Great futures start here!
