The Fulton Men’s Auxiliary will be cooking an all-you-can-eat brunch as a fundraiser for the Kingdom Projects lunch program. Men’s Auxiliary and VFW members, as well as friends of the clubs, will cook eggs, sausage, pancakes, fried potatoes, biscuits and gravy, fruit, fried chicken, ham, green beans and dessert 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1.
The auxiliary has sponsored two brunch fundraisers in the past for SERVE, Inc., a Fulton non-profit social service agency, and the city’s new animal shelter, which raised $1,200 and $1,000, respectively. Dave Young, a long-time volunteer at the VFW, said the past brunches have attracted 140-160 people. This time he and Men’s Auxiliary President Steve Harding, and Lon Little, Kingdom Projects manager, are hoping to surpass that number.
“It’s the same mess no matter what size the crowd,” Young said with a laugh.
The fundraiser is personal for Young as his son worked at Kingdom Projects for a little more than two years.
The suggested donation is $10 but people are welcome to donate more. Young said the largest donation from a single person has been $100.
