Description: Fourteenth Annual Kiwanis Dogwood Pancake Breakfast to Support Benjamin Hair Just Swim for Life Foundation

Our mission is to provide the motivation, systems, and tools to “waterproof our community” so that all children have basic swimming skills and are safe around water.

The Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville will donate proceeds of its Fourteenth Annual Dogwood Pancake Breakfast to the Benjamin Hair Just Swim for Life Foundation. BH-JSL funds certified Water Safety Instructors to conduct learn-to-swim programs to improve water safety in the Charlottesville/Albemarle area.

NEW LOCATION:First Baptist Church, 735 Park Street
• 7:30 - 11 a.m. Tickets available for just $5 at the door.
• Children under six eat free!

"We want to train young children to swim and we have a goal of reducing the number of children who are at risk of drowning," stated Gordon Hair, president of BH-JSL. "Drowning is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. for children under 14 and the leading cause of accidental death for children five and under. We are delighted that Kiwanis has stepped up to help us address this important need in this community."

“We invite the public to come downtown for a delicious fun-filled pancake breakfast and then enjoy the always spectacular Dogwood Festival Parade,” said Sue Shiels, Kiwanis Dogwood Pancake Breakfast Committee Chairperson. “We are proud to join with the Benjamin Hair Just Swim for Life Foundation in making sure the most critical needs of our children and youth are addressed,” Eric Lamb, current Kiwanis President, added.

In addition to the all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausages, strawberries, coffee, juice, and water, there will also be the appearance of our perennial favorite “Celebrity Pancake Flippers” who will amaze and delight the young and the young at heart.
