With over 100 pounds of bacon, the men of Zeta Beta Tau are hoping to intrigue students and community members to join them in supporting the American Cancer Society.
Each year, ZBT hosts a pancake dinner where guests can buy raffle tickets, eat unlimited bacon and pancakes and socialize with friends while also supporting a good cause. In memory of a ZBT member’s fallen mother, the men hope to spread awareness and support of cancer.
This is the third year for the dinner, and last year, ZBT raised over $3,000 for the ACS. Philanthropy chair junior Corbin Peterson, who has organized the event all three years, is hoping to match that number.
“It’s been great seeing the progress of the Pancake Dinner over the years,” Peterson said. “Each year we have a great turnout, and I hope this event continues for a very long time. Cancer is something that affects everyone, and we have already had brothers who have dealt with losses. We only hope that we can make a difference for families in the future by turning this event into a success each year, not just through monetary donations but through support for one another.”
Raffle prizes have been given from businesses in Monmouth and Galesburg including gift certificates for Buffalo Wild Wings or items from Auto Zone and Market Ally Wines.
Tickets can be bought in Stockdale during regular meal times or at the door of the event for $6 or two for $10. The dinner will be held Saturday, April 20, at the First United Presbyterian Church (just one block south of the Alpha Xi Delta house) from 5-8 p.m.
