The Crescenta Valley High School campus was a busy place on Saturday as people lined up for the CV Town Council Pancake Breakfast.

The traditional breakfast was a fundraiser for the CVTC, supporting its various outreaches including the high school scholarship program.

Tickets were $5 prior to the event and CVTC offered community non-profit organizations a share in the fundraising. For each ticket sold, the non-profit received 50%.

This year there was an additional outreach by the Lions Club with its Eye Mobile that was parked in the school’s quad. The club had an optometrist present, offering free eye examines including glaucoma screenings.

Several officials joined the event to flip pancakes and help out including Anthony Portantino, Rita Hadjimanoukian from Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich’s office and Nayiri Nahabedian, president of the Glendale Unified School District board of education.

CVTC also recognized Prom Plus on its 20th anniversary. The grassroots organization offers an after prom party for CVHS seniors and their guests. There are several activities including climbing a rock wall, riding mechanical bull and ziplining and a full casino at the event.
