Each year, the Santa's Pancake Breakfast serves as a multi-purpose event for our club -  a fundraiser for our charitable obligations and a community event to promote Rotary in the North Shore, as well as, providing middle and high school students a chance to volunteer and build their service mindset. 
On December 3rd,  Milwaukee North Shore Rotary hosted its successful Pancake Breakfast with Santa. This was our 27th event and it was by far our best.  We had 595 breakfasts served to local families and students who graciously volunteer every year for the event. 
 
This year we had Arts & Crafts,  a Balloonist making festive balloons, handmade pancakes, pictures with “the Real Santa”,  performances by four area High School Bands and door prizes.  Each year, the Santa's Pancake Breakfast serves as a multi-purpose event for our club -  a fundraiser for our charitable obligations and a community event to promote Rotary in the North Shore, as well as, providing middle and high school students a chance to volunteer and build their service mindset. 
 
Our event earned the club over $5,000 and we had more than 30 volunteers from the schools and the Boy Scout troop, our club sponsors. This Milwaukee North Shore Rotary event featured greater than 70% participation and attendance by our club members.
