Kentucky School for the Deaf plans annual fundraiser

From: Central Kentucky News - Jan 30, 2013

Kentucky School for the Deaf will host its Pancake and Sausage Day from 6:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Friday at Grow Hall.

The cost is $5 and the meal includes pancakes, sausage, coffee and orange juice.

The annual event began in 1980 to raise funds for students and teachers for which there were no available funds. It was established by the Parent-Teacher-Cottage Association. Proceeds benefit student organizations, the Jacobs Hall Museum and the KSD Foundation.

Organizers also will raffle a 32-inch flat screen TV donated by Harrodsburg Corning; a 19-inch flat screen TV from an anonymous donor; a homemade quilt, artwork and photography; and gift cards.

A silent auction will include “themed” baskets ranging from University of Kentucky and University of Louisville baskets to those for chocolate lovers, pet lovers, aromatherapy, a collection of Danville books and a basket of kitchen utensils. Buffalo Trace and Pepsi Co. also have donated themed baskets.

Betsy and Tony Wilson of Wilson Realty & Auction will conduct a live auction. Items include a bar and stools handcarved from wood from Turkey and donated by Dwayne and Kelly Brown; an original numbered Rolling Stones print valued at $3,000 and donated by the band’s former photographer from New York City; and a pair of Marchon 3-D sunglasses donated by Eye Associates Optical.

Booths featuring local deaf artists and students will sell handmade crafts and art. One of the deaf artists makes fabric flower arrangements. More than 20 booths will be set up.
