CASPER, Wyo. — The Kiwanis Club of Casper’s 68th Pancake Festival is returning March 11, and tickets are now on sale for the fundraiser that supports programs serving children throughout Casper.

All-you-can-eat pancakes, eggs and sausage and a variety of breakfast beverages will be available at the Casper College cafeteria from 7 a.m. to roughly 1 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $8 for adults. Admission is free for children three and under.

Kiwanis Club member Mike Keim said 100% of the money raised at the Pancake Festival will go to the club’s various programs throughout the year, most of which are aimed at helping area children.

In years past, those programs have included funding reading programs at schools, building picnic shelters at area parks, sponsoring Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, building a handicapped children’s park at the North Casper Sports Complex, adding a bench and gazebo overlooking the Platte River and more, Keim said.

Tickets can be purchased from any Kiwanis Club member or by calling Oil City News at 307-363-1423. Keim said tickets can also be purchased at the door.

“It’s a good time,” Keim said. “It’s a chance to see your friends, enjoy some good food and support children throughout Casper.”
