In summer 2011, student’s completed the program’s 41st home construction project on Earl Shaffer Court in the Sumerset subdivision.
The pancake dinner fundraiser launched in recent years to improve awareness of the program and provide scholarship opportunities for students who wish to attend college in a construction related field of study, according to the program’s website.
Last year, about 200 community members attended the dinner and approximately $2,700 was raised to go toward the scholarships.
Tickets for the fundraiser are $7 at the door, and $5 for groups of ten or more. There will be all-you-can-eat pancakes, fruit and beverages.
Sponsors for the event include Bank of Ann Arbor, Mans Lumber, Anderson Paint, E.A.S Realty, Varsity Ford, Mechanical Industry Labor Management Fund, UA Local 190 and Greater Michigan PMC Association, Richard Landau and Johnson Brothers Construction.
