Tri-City HeraldJune 4, 2014 

Stuff your face for a good cause at the annual pancake breakfast to support two local charities is Saturday at Jefferson Park in Richland.

All proceeds from the event go to Safe Harbor Support Center and Support Advocacy & Resource Center (SARC).

Safe Harbor aims to reduce child abuse and neglect in the community. The organization has provided support to more than 2,000 Tri-City families.

SARC helps sexual assault victims and crime victims in Benton and Franklin counties. The organizations will split the donations.

JoDee Garretson, executive director at SARC, told the Herald that the breakfast has grown a lot since it first started and some of the money raised will help advocates from SARC serve the community.

The 10th annual breakfast is from 7 to 11 a.m. outside at the park on George Washington Way near the Uptown Shopping Center.

Donations are welcome but the food is free.

Food is donated and the event is sponsored by several people and businesses.

The pancake chefs at this year's event include Kennewick Chief Ken Hohenberg, Benton County Sheriff Steve Keane, Richland Police Chief Chris Skinner, Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller, Benton County Commissioner Jerome Delvin and Benton County Coroner John Hansens.

The event attracts as many as 500 people each year. In 10 years, the breakfast has raised almost $36,000.
