Sonoma County Firefighter Fundraisers - 2016

Sonoma County's rural fire departments depend upon volunteer firefighters and fundraisers to fill the gap between county funduing and real expenses. This is a great way to become familiar with what your community fire department does to keep you safe...from putting out fires to storm emergencies and vehicle accidents. Get to know your fire department and help them help you!

Pancake Breakfast - including Gluten-Free pancakes!

3750 Gravenstein Hwy. N. Graton
As you know, the Graton community has made our breakfast one of the biggest and best anywhere in Sonoma County. It is our one and only fundraiser to support the volunteers. The menu includes all you can eat pancakes, sausage scrambled eggs, Manzana apple juice, orange juice, milk, hot chocolate, tea and coffee. Gluten-free pancakes and sugar-free syrup are available... just ask! Price is $5 adults and $3 kids. The pancake breakfast is from 7am to noon; avoid 9:00 to 10:30, because this is usually the busiest time. We have added more grills and a “pre-sale” line to try and keep up as well.  T-shirts, sweatshirts, glasses, and other items will be on sale at the breakfast. Address signs can be made “while-you-eat.” We will have Fire Engines, Police Cars, Ambulances, SWAT Tank, and Helicopters on display for the kids as well as other displays. Thank you to all of the people who have donated raffle prizes in the past; from wine to B&B gift certificates, lawn mowers to jewelry – we had over 200 winners last year. Donations? INO: 707-823-7939.
