Dear Pancakes for PIE Partner:
On behalf of the board of directors of Craven County Partners In Education, thank you for being a partner for our “Pancakes for PIE” event at Morgan’s Tavern & Grill on Saturday, December 3!
Through your generosity, we served over 850 (up from 610 last year) delicious pancake breakfasts (which included heaping portions of pancakes, sausage, bacon, fruit, orange juice, and coffee) for a total of $18,500 raised through ticket sales and sponsorships.
Candice and Adam Simmons at Morgan’s unselfishly donated all proceeds from the breakfast to PIE. The Morgan’s staff gave up their Saturday morning, along with Santa Ervin, the New Bern High Chorus, and 23 PIE volunteers consisting of teachers, school staff members, and community supporters.
The money raised from this event will be used to fund PIE Grants for our teachers. We expect to fund $35,000 in PIE Grants, and this fundraiser is a significant part of that funding. These grants fund innovative and creative projects in our classrooms that might not have happened had it not been for your generosity and Partnership!
If you are looking for Christmas gifts, I urge you to shop and support local by purchasing a gift card from Morgan's as a way of saying thank you to Morgan's for making Pancakes for PIE happen and for supporting so many good causes in our community!
Thank you to everyone who made this event a tremendous success!
Merry Christmas and the Happiest of Holidays to you and yours!
Darlene Brown on behalf of the
