Dads, Kids & Pancakes

Montecito Union School doesn’t convene on Saturdays, but that didn’t stop 30 dads from showing up to the San Ysidro campus last month to cook a full of menu of pancakes, sausages and eggs. They even brought an espresso cart.

As they got going at the disagreeable hour of 7:30 in the morning, a procession of bleary-eyed kids came in and accepted their fare with good cheer.

The breakfast raised $600 for the school’s PTA. Dads Richard Gillman and Steve Benhayon manned the cash register, charging $7 per plate and accepted bonus donations.
