Thanks to the help of many volunteers and the American Legion Post 278, our 13th Annual Omelet Breakfast was a success. The money we raised from breakfast sales, donations and Marvelous Mentoring Meal tickets will play a huge role in sustaining Bridges’ budget throughout 2015.
This breakfast was only possible because so many people donated their time and talents during the weekend.
Much preparation goes into planning an omelet breakfast, from ordering supplies to publishing the event. This year, Three Eagles Communication helped us spread the word over the radio airwaves. You may have heard DJ Harry O. talk about Bridges or our Program Coordinator Lacey Waller participate in a live interview.
The staff at Payless Foods in Osage went out of their way to help place our order and transport the food to the American Legion while many of our board members prepared the food.
Our two board members Eva and Marlene volunteered to bake all 480 cinnamon rolls.
The American Legion not only hosted the event, but helped us round-up an all star team of omelet cookers.
Mentors and mentees helped serve breakfast and our State Representative Josh Byrnes even volunteered to make omelets. Like we said, we couldn’t have hosted this fundraiser without the help of all three of our Mitchell Communities.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered or attended the breakfast for supporting Bridges!
In case you missed the breakfast but would still like to sign-up for a Marvelous Mentoring Meal, contact us about ticket availability. There are still openings for some of the meals. Plus, we’re still accepting Bricks for Bridges orders. Here’s a recent Thanksgiving brick we just created.
As always, we love hearing from you. Contact us with any questions or concerns. We have an especially high need for men and couples who can donate four hours a month to mentor boys.
