NorthStar Center had a Pancake Breakfast fundraiser on April 25, and members hoped to raise enough money to pay off heating bills from the long winter.
Gone Wired Cafe hosted the event. (www.gonewiredlansing.com) The cafe has a reputation for hosting breakfasts to help local organizations raise money. This fundraiser was from 9 a.m to noon on Saturday, and it was the center’s first time teaming with the cafe.
Core members David Mitchell, Melissa Hornaday and Stefan Meyer were all present and engaged in conversation when I arrived around 10 a.m. The area for the fundraiser was cozy, and the hushed but passionate talking mixed together to create a very comfortable atmosphere.
The 3-hour event raised almost $400 for the center, a beautiful number next to last month’s fundraising figures.
What’s next on NorthStar’s agenda you ask? Fliers at the fundraiser advertised May Day 2009, an event at Hunter Park to promote human rights.
