Join us for the annual Ocean Beach Pancake Breakfast on the pier!
This year it is on Saturday – September 15th - 7:30 am to 12 noon – benefitting the OB Christmas food and toy drive.
Tickets only $10 for adults/$5 for children. It includes a full breakfast of pancakes, fresh fruit, hot coffee and more.
All proceeds from the event go toward making a difference in the lives of over 80 Ocean Beach families and/or seniors in need by providing them with packages of food for their holiday meals around Christmas (food that they normally would not have due to their financial constraints) as well as gifts to give to their children and grandchildren. This event is the first of many that benefit the food and toy drive and it is definitely one of the liveliest. The OB Town Council Board of Directors will cook and serve pancakes and also raffle off awesome prizes from local OB merchants including Therapie Day Spa, OBistro Restaurant, Sweet Salon, Temptress boutique and many more.
Tickets can be purchased at the Farmer’s Market every Wednesday, Dog Beach Dog Wash, Raglan Public House, South Coast Surf Shop, Surf & Sea and Shades Oceanfront Bistro. Let us know if you want us to get you tickets – as they may sell out!
