This year’s Auburn Rotary Jim Balloni Memorial Pancake Breakfast was a big hit in more ways than one.
In addition to raising $5,000 for Warm The Children of Cayuga County, the Rotarians donated canned goods and gift bags from the local GEICO agency to Genesee Elementary School’s Fill-A-Belly program run by school nurse Sandy Lalonde.
Ed Helinski said on Wednesday’s Finger Lakes Morning News Sandy came up with an idea for the gift bags.
Helinski thanked everyone for their generosity. More than 1,400 new coats were distributed in this year’s Warm the Children event earlier this month.
