"Tip" Sister Pat!

Pancake Palooza 2022

$11,170 towards $20,000

Hi. I'm S. Pat Newhouse!

This is my 10th year helping Haven House raise funds to house homeless families. For the first 3 years I sold their MSU Tailgate cookbooks. Then I was invited to become a Star Server at the annual Haven House Pancake Palooza. Meeting a homeless mom with a 6-day old baby moved my heart and spurred my efforts to help homeless families and inspire others to do the same.

For the past six years I have won the People's Choice Award for the most donors. Mark McDaniel has won the Pancake Award for raising the most money. Over the years he has been trying to win both awards, but thanks to all my donors I have been able to keep him from achieving that goal. With your donation you can help me do it again, and maybe even win both of the awards.

Haven House not only helps families find housing, but helps families by developing and promoting self-sufficiency, stability and financial responsibility by providing crisis counseling assistance with goal setting and referrals to other agencies as needed.

During the pandemic it has been even more urgent for everyone to dig deep and pitch in to help these families get into permanent housing. I strongly encourage all of you to please inform your friends about this wonderful organization. If everybody contributes to this great cause together, we can make miracles happen for homeless families and get them back on their feet again.

Join me and the other Star Servers this year for the 8th annual Pancake Palooza on Saturday, February 12, 2022. You can donate any time between now and then to support my fundraising efforts by just putting S. PAT in the memo line on your check and send it to:
