"There once was a Mark from Lansing, who cared much about communities like Haven House advancing. So he donned his waiter's gear, said pancakes here!"
I donated in support of this campaign.
I've returned as a Star Server for Pancake Palooza 2022 to defend my championship title and do what I love – help Haven House support families in our community who are struggling with homelessness get back on their feet!
For the sake of everyone's safety, Pancake Palooza will again be a virtual event starting at 9:00 am on February 12, 2022. You can log in to watch star servers deliver messages, perform challenges and compete to see who will be Top Server!
If you can't attend but want to donate to a well deserving charity it will be added to my "tip jar." Donations large and small are welcome and appreciated.
COVID has taken so much from all of us, but for some in our community, it has also taken their homes, a reality you and I are fortunate to not have. For the past 30+ years I've dedicated my life to a career that focuses on the immediate need for affordable housing in Michigan. It's my passion and a passion I share with the incredible and talented team at Cinnaire.
Cinnaire is guided by our organization's Why statement – We have an unwavering belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities. We help to create affordable housing in at-risk areas through lending and investing programs. Through these programs Cinnaire is able to create jobs, improve lives and contribute to a vibrant, strong community. That's one of the reasons it's no surprise my team and I are strong supporters of Haven House, a shelter that focuses on helping homeless families prepare for permanent housing by developing and promoting self-sufficiency, stability and financial responsibility. Funds raised at the annual Pancake Palooza directly impact the lives of our neighbors by creating a safe place to fall back on during the most vulnerable time of their lives.
Last year with the funds raised we were able to help over 60 families in need, a new record for the event! I'm so excited to be a star server again at this year's Pancake Palooza and have a goal of raising funds to help even more families in our community. Let's make it happen together.
Thank you in advance for whatever you can give and for supporting my effort to make a difference to our neighbors in need.
