A SHORT STACK FOR A TALL CAUSE
Miss Brooklyn Scholarship Organization Teams with Applebee’s for the Flapjack Fundraiser
BROOKLYN, NY —What could be better on a Saturday morning that a nice plate of fluffy, hot pancakes? Well how about having Miss Brooklyn (www.missbrooklyn.org) pass you the maple syrup? Join Mallory Hagan, Miss Brooklyn 2010 and Joelle Bracco, Brooklyn’s Outstanding Teen, for the two-hour Flapjack Fundraiser on Saturday, September 25. Sponsored by Applebee’s, the event takes place at the eatery’s Atlantic Terminal (139 Flatbush Avenue at Dekalb Avenue) location in Downtown Brooklyn. Proceeds will raise money for the scholarships that are given to be given to the winners of the upcoming Miss Brooklyn pageant this October.
“Applebee’s has always been considered a neighborhood favorite and its dedication to the local community is well known,” says Miss Brooklyn Executive Director, Amaris Acosta. “The Miss Brooklyn Organization hopes to accomplish the same by providing our hometown girls with the platform to serve the community through volunteerism, as well as the opportunity to earn scholarships to further their education and future goals.”
Serving both as a fundraiser and as a chance for the Brooklyn community to get to know more about the titleholders and the pageant that is a local preliminary for the Miss America pageant, the breakfast event begins at 8 am and includes a menu of flapjacks, bacon, eggs and juice—an enticing Saturday morning meal.
Tickets for the event can be purchased via the Miss Brooklyn website at www.missbrooklyn.org.
RSVP by Saturday September 19. Hope to see you there -- I'm going!!
