Topekans turn out for “breakfast for dinner” as Hotcakes comes to the Capitol
Hotcakes for Hopecare, GraceMed’s benefit breakfast became a “Capitol” affair on March 5th as Countryside United Methodist Church hosted the event that featured an interesting twist. This time we served our guests breakfast for dinner.
“All the logistics seemed to work better to host an evening event here,” said Alice Weingartner, Director of Community Development. “We had a really good reception for the idea. It seemed to add to the fun to do something unexpected.”
Nearly 200 Topekans came out to help us raise funds. Celebrity servers included Randy Peterson, retiring CEO of Stormont Vail Health, Danielle Norwood, WIBW radio host, Shawnee County Commissioners Bill Riphahn, Bob Archer and Kevin Cook along with Mayor Michelle De La Isla and Matt Pivarnik from the Greater Topeka Partnership.
