Honor Flight Southern Nevada to host pancake breakfast fundraiser
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
Honor Flight Southern Nevada will be hosting a pancake breakfast fundraiser from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, at the Applebee’s restaurant located at 5010 S. Fort Apache Road.
The cost of the breakfast is $10, and the nonprofit organization receives $5 for every breakfast sold. The proceeds from the event will go toward providing southern Nevada veterans with a flight to visit war memorials in Washington, D.C., at no cost to them.
HFSN is currently fundraising in order to send 25 World War II and four Korean War veterans on a three-day trip, departing Las Vegas on Oct. 27. The trip is open to veterans within southern Nevada including Mesquite, Pahrump, Boulder City, and Laughlin.
Veterans will be accompanied and cared for by volunteer guardians. All guardians will escort them as they visit the WWII, Iwo Jima, Korean, Vietnam, and Women’s War Memorials.
“We are delighted to give our veterans the trip of a lifetime by hosting this fundraiser,” said Belinda Morse, executive director of Honor Flight Southern Nevada. “This event shows our community how much our veterans mean to us and we come together to support these men and women for their brave service to our country.”
