A pancake breakfast in support of the Surrey Food Bank is set for Nov. 14 at First United Church in White Rock.

Organized by a team of six Langara College students – Emiko Angus, Cameron Nakata, Alex Ngai, Zara Quek, Stacey Smith and Rachel Venner – the hope is to raise at least $500 for the cause.

“…but it would be amazing if we could reach somewhere closer to $1,000, especially since it’s right before Christmas,” Angus said by email.

The event was chosen to fulfill requirements of Langara’s bachelor of recreation management program.

It’s to take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the 15385 Semiahmoo Ave. church, with highlights to also include games, crafts and a silent auction.

Admission is a suggested donation of $3 per child and $4 per adult. Game tickets will also be available in exchange for donations of non-perishable food items.

For more information, call 778-869-3972.
