Pancake Breakfast

16th Annual Leadership Winter Park Pancake Breakfast

The Leadership Winter Park Pancake Breakfast has become a holiday tradition.  Come early, enjoy a delicious breakfast and get a great seat for the “Ye Olde Hometown” Christmas Parade (parade begins at 9 a.m.).

Help us turn pancake batter into a stack of dough! Invest in the future of our community by supporting the Winter Park Improvement Foundation in its efforts to develop adult and youth leaders through Leadership Winter Park programs. Participants cultivate essential leadership skills, examine community issues and aid local non-profit agencies in projects that leave a lasting impact on Winter Park.

Proceeds from the Pancake Breakfast will go directly to the Winter Park Improvement Foundation.

Leadership Winter Park will also collect school supply items at the event to benefit local elementary schools.
