The Ridges Sanctuary hosted its 9th Annual Great Waffle Breakfast on Feb. 4, and more than 200 people filled the Baileys Harbor Town Hall as staff and volunteers made and served waffles, cherry and blueberry toppings, syrup and whip cream.
“It started as a reason to get the community together during what can be a long Door County winter,” said Steve Leonard, executive director of The Ridges. The gathering now averages between 200 and 300 people. “It’s great to see everyone together in one space, enjoying waffles, great coffee and conversation.”
More than 30 volunteers assisted with the event, from preparing waffles and clearing tables to doing dishes and serving toppings. “Volunteers are at the core of everything we do here at The Ridges,” continued Leonard. “We can’t express enough gratitude for their energy, passion and dedication to this organization.”
The Ridges appreciated donations from Jorns’ Sugar Bush maple syrup, cherry filling from Hyline Orchard, and coffee from Door County Coffee. For more information, visit RidgesSanctuary.org or call 920.839.2802.
