HUNTERSVILLE – The Huntersville Lions Club will hold its pancake breakfast from 7:30-11 a.m.  Feb. 23 in the community room of the Huntersville United Methodist Church, 14005 Stumptown Road

Proceeds from the event will be aid the blind and visually impaired, primarily supporting Camp Dogwood on Lake Norman that is operated by the N.C. Lions Inc.

This is the 50th year that the Huntersville Lions has held a pancake event.

Tickets cost $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-12 and children younger than 5 eat free. The menu includes pancakes with various toppings, sausage, biscuits and gravy, juice and other drinks.
