Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser

Yuck! Eww! Are a few of the responses that people usually have when it comes to reptiles. Fortunately for us, our local Reptile Family has been inspiring the discovery and appreciation of the earth’s most misunderstood creatures through innovative, educational, entertaining and hands-on experiences in a safe and caring environment since 1992. One of their main goals is to replace fallacy with fact and fear with respect.

Come by the pancake breakfast fundraiser, “Short stacks for a TALL cause” a benefit for the San Marcos Parent-Child Workshop (SMPCW) a non-profit, cooperative preschool to learn about reptiles and make Valentine day crafts for a great cause.

Since 1959, SMPCW has provided Santa Barbara families and children between the ages of 2-5 years, a quality preschool experience, using developmentally appropriate practices. The nurturing, loving environment makes an ideal first school experience for children and brings out the best in parents. SMPCW individualizes their education program for children and families and acknowledges that each person brings different needs, skills, interests, backgrounds and life experiences. Together with families, SMPCW helps instill a sense of community and provides a space that embodies the spirit of learning, while having fun and giving back to the Santa Barbara community.

Event will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. until 11:30 am at Community Covenant Church 5070 Cathedral Oaks Road Santa Barbara, CA 93111. Tickets available online or at the door.
