More than $2000.00 was raised at the 18th Annual Pancake Waffle Breakfast on Sunday, December 11, 2011. Since 1994, thousands of dollars have been raised and sent to Puerto Rican political prisoners.”We started by raising $300.00 and then made $500.00 a goal, then $800.00 and $1000.00 and now look!” said Dr. Margaret Power, who was part of the original breakfast crew.
At Sunday’s event, over 100 people ate delicious pancakes (vegan and non-vegan), fruit salad and coffee and juice. “We’ve raised enough money to send commissary to Oscar, Avelino and Norberto” added Michelle Morales, co-coordinator of the NBHRN. The attendees also shopped at the 8 community artisans tables and purchased their holiday gifts. A big thank you to all who attended and donated for the breakfast, as well as to the volunteers and NBHRN who set up, cooked and cleaned up! View pictures of the event here.
