The Snoqualmie Firefighters Association is holding its annual Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Aug. 17 at the Snoqualmie Fire Station (37600 SE Snoqulamie Parkway, Snoqualmie).
Snoqualmie firefighters will cook a pancake and ham breakfast for attendees. Krispy Kreme donuts and Starbucks coffee also will be available. Breakfast is $8 for adults, $6 for kids (5-12), and free for children younger than 5. Peter O’Donnell, president of the association, said they are continuing their commitment of going “green” and partnering with Waste Management with goal of a “zero waste event.” Raffle tickets for the silent action are $2 per ticket for items less than $100 from local businesses.
“This is a great opportunity to come down and meet your firefighters and volunteer firefighters… especially for the kids,” O’Donnell said.
Proceeds will go back to the Snoqualmie Firefighters Association. The nonprofit association helps support the Snoqualmie Fire Department’s special equipment purchases as well as community events, public safety and fire education, human services assistance during emergency situations, high school scholarships in the health and fire sciences, and historic preservation organization with the community.
“The funds we take in, we do our best to turn them right around to the community,” O’Donnell said.
Firetrucks and ambulances also will be on display for families. If weather permits, the station hopes to have a firehouse squirting water for the kids.
T-shirts and bike helmets will be available for purchase.
