Eat pancakes for a good cause

Enjoy a breakfast fit for heroes in Alamo next week. The Alamo Women's Club and Keller Williams Realty are working together to host a Hero's Pancake Breakfast to benefit families of the four Oakland police officers killed in the line of duty in March.

"After this tragic event, Danville and Alamo needed to show their support for these brave men," said Corinne Barlow, first vice president of the Alamo Women's Club.

The breakfast is being held at the Alamo clubhouse Saturday, July 18. It begins at 8 a.m. and will run until 11 a.m., with the goal of raising $10,000.

The cost is $6 per person, and children under 5 are free for a full breakfast. A 50/50 drawing will also be held with the ticket price being split evenly between the winner and the benefit. All proceeds are going toward the officers' families' trust funds and toward the California Transplant Donor Network. Sgt. Erv Romans was a Danville resident and his family still lives here.

Buying tickets in advance is recommended; contact Barlow at or telephone 878-5200.

"We need everyone to come out and show their full support in this situation," said Barlow.
