PCF to serve pancake breakfast, host Pancake Race and announce 2024 grant awards

Pancake racers brave the cold for the 2023 race.

Peabody, KS.- Peabody Community Foundation (PCF) will host Pancake Day from 7-11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 3 at the Peabody-Burns High School Brown Building at 810 N. Sycamore. Sausage and pancake breakfast will be served by at-will donation to benefit PCF. The public is invited.
Young people ages 13 and under are invited to participate in the annual Flippin Pancake Race beginning at 10 a.m. across from the Brown Building at the practice football field. Participants should bring their own skillet and be prepared to run outside, skillet in hand. No entry fee will be charged, but racers will need a release of liability form signed by a parent or guardian in order to participate; forms will be available before the race.
“The Pancake Race is just old-fashioned community fun. The adult spectators seem to have as much fun watching the kids as the kids do running,” said Becky Nickel, PCF Director.
At 10:30 a.m., the 2024 foundation grant awards to community charities will be announced. Funds for grants were sourced from two PCF endowed funds, the Peabody Community Endowment and the Kansas Health Foundation Fund.
The support of Patterson Family Foundation is propelling the work of PCF forward, according to Nickel. The Patterson $70,000 match challenge was met in late 2023 and benefited 19 of the 29 PCF component funds. Additionally, a grant from the Patterson Foundation will fund a full-time Associate Director for PCF for three years. Interested persons should visit www.CentralKansasCF.org and look under the Job Openings tab for more information.
PCF is an affiliate of Central Kansas Community Foundation, based in Newton, Kan., and serving a six-county region.
