The Bikes for Books program, partnered with the Mid-Columbia Children's Reading Foundation, is holding a pancake breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday at the Masonic Lodge, 601 W. Sixth Ave., Kennewick, to pay for the purchases of the bikes they distribute to Tri-City schools each year.
Bikes for Books is a program that seeks to promote and encourage reading, giving children incentive to read books by handing out 32 bikes to Tri-City elementary schools each year. Additionally, two bikes are given to local libraries for their annual Summer Reading Program.
Proceeds from the pancake breakfast will go toward the purchase of these bikes. Breakfast costs $7 per person. The event will also have a bake sale and a raffle for a bike.
