The Greater Los Angeles Morehouse Alumni Association is preparing for its annual pancake breakfast fundraiser. The fundraiser will be held from 9:00am- 12:30am at Antioch Baptist Church – 1535 Gundry Ave, Long Beach California 90806. This year, their very own 11th President of Morehouse College “John Silvanus Wilson Jr.” will be the guest speaker. Last year, they served pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, juice and fresh fruit.
Every year, the association raises much needed funds to provide scholarships and grants for incoming freshman and current students from the Los Angeles area. Last year, the proceeds allowed them to grant 10 freshmen $1,000 each and 1 graduating senior $1,000 to obtain his Morehouse degree.
This year the goal is to raise $10,000 for scholarships and grants. The tickets are $10 each; $15 at the door for an all you can eat breakfast.

“This is the Greater Los Angeles Morehouse Alumni Association’s top fundraiser and they need your support,” said an event spokesperson.
