KANSAS CITY, Missouri – On Saturday morning, if you wanted to eat, you had to keep your eye on the prize. Or else your breakfast might have ended up on the floor.

That’s because the famous Kansas City catering company Chris Cakes served breakfast and flung pancakes to those who showed up for Northeast Neighbor to Neighbor’s pancake fundraiser. The local organization, which provides financial and other support services to the medically underserved residents of the Northeast neighborhoods. In its second year, over 100 were served and the pancakes brought in around $1,000 in tickets sales and donations, an increase of 25 percent from the year before.

As the tables packed themselves with community members catching up on area affairs, Elaine Joslyn, founder of Northeast Neighbor to Neighbor, said the pancake breakfast is the group’s second largest fundraiser, only behind the Cliffhanger 5k and 8k run. At one point in the morning, Miss Midwest, Amber McKinney, of Lee’s Summit, volunteered to serve breakfast and pass out juices.

Joslyn said having the breakfast catered by Chris Cakes probably brought a lot of people to the event.

Known for their sassy interactions with customers, Chris Cakes representatives Rachel Werkowitch said the company tries to make a point to make a scene. As Werkowitch would instruct patrons to step back from her serving counter, oohs and awes would emenate from the crowd as Werkowitch would successfully flip pancakes onto plates.

“We like to have fun with our customers,” Werkowitch said.
