Calling all appetites: Students host pancake feed to benefit Habitat for Humanity

LAWRENCE — Students in the Self Engineering Leadership Fellows Program at the University of Kansas will host the second Flapjacks for Philanthropy fundraiser from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 4, in the Engineering Courtyard between Eaton and Learned halls.

Proceeds from the all-you-can-eat pancake feed will benefit Habitat for Humanity, an international nonprofit organization that provides simple and affordable housing to people of need all over the world. Since the inception of Lawrence’s Habitat for Humanity chapter in 1989, 68 homes have been completed locally, housing more than 160 adults and children with the help of more than 3,000 volunteers.

Tickets for the pancake fee are $5 in advance or $6 the morning of the event. Advance tickets are available by contacting one of the students in the Self program or Self Program Director Lucy McGilley, (785) 864-2945. The event also will feature drawings for prizes and gift certificates.

The Self Engineering Leadership Fellows Program, funded by KU alumni Madison “Al” and Lila Self, is an enrichment and leadership program for goal-oriented engineering and computer science students who want to become leaders in technology and business.
