As a bonus to the popular breakfast event that raises money for local nonprofits and other programs, the day’s activities will also include a family bike ride along the boardwalk at 9:30 a.m., led by District 2 City Councilman Kevin Faulconer and police department Assistant Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman.
“Without Kevin’s assistance, it would have been difficult to complete the recent renovation of the Crown Point Pavilion, which was originally donated by our club in 1983,” said Jerry Hall, president of the Mission Bay Rotary Club. “And ... Shelley Zimmerman is a great addition to the community. She has a hands-on approach to solving community issues and has already made a big impact. We wanted to show our appreciation of these two community superstars with a donation to the Challenged Athletes Foundation.”
Faulconer and Zimmerman will be making a 620-mile journey down the California coastline from San Francisco to San Diego to raise funds for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. The Rotary family bike ride they will lead June 15 will be less than three miles, but should help participants burn off the pancakes.
Proceeds of past breakfasts have supported the Rotary’s Third Grade Dictionary Program, the renovation of the Crown Point Pavilion, equipment donation of $10,000 for the Junior Lifeguard Program and funding for the Bridge to the Beach Program. This year’s breakfast will support the dictionary program for local third-graders in Clairemont and Mission Bay and the Crystal Pier Kids Classic Youth Fishing Derby on Aug. 10, as well as the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
Tickets are $8 per person or two for $15; tickets for children 12 and under are $5. Tickets may be purchased at the Wave House on the day of the event. Underwriting for has been provided by the Bahia Hotel and the Wave House.
The Wave House is located at 3125 Ocean Front Walk.
