In support of Eastside Fire & Rescue, University House Issaquah is holding a pancake breakfast from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday at the retirement community.
University House is hoping to raise $1,500, enough to aid in the purchase of an Oceanid, a watercraft that helps with swift water and flood rescues, said University House’s Nicole Francois. Because of budget cuts, Eastside Fire & Rescue cannot afford to make the purchase themselves.
Pancake breakfast tickets are $5 per person. Visitors also can take photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus for a $2 donation. Last year, about 250 people attended the pancake breakfast and raised $1,300.“Budgets across the state are especially tight right now,” said Jennifer Petty, University House Issaquah life enrichment director. “The firefighters and medics who serve our community help people every day. Giving back to them and saying thanks with our support is the least we can do.”
University House Issaquah is at 22975 S.E. Black Nugget Road. Learn more at www.eraliving.com/communities/issaquah.
