Good breakfast for a good cause

Good breakfast for a good cause

The Carthage Train Crew Shriners got together Saturday morning for a breakfast fundraiser with proceeds going towards local children. For seven dollars, people got an all-you-can-eat experience of bacon, eggs, biscuits and all the breakfast trimmings.

Dozens of people from the community turned up to support the event. Money raised from the breakfast goes towards the Shriners’ general fund which supports hospital transportation for kids.

Organizers say their goal is pretty simple.

“We’re just raising money. I mean, it’s an event to raise money. It’s like the tractor pulls which is a Shriner event, but it’s just, you know, raising money. That’s all we’re trying to do,” said Train Crew Shriner John Stevens.

If you’d like to join them for breakfast next time, the Carthage Train Crew Shriners’ next tasty fundraiser will be held on Feb. 3rd.
