2016 Pancakes for PIE a Delicious Success!

The perfect way to have a delicious pancake breakfast before visiting Santa in Bear Plaza, taking in some shopping, and enjoying the many activities happening during the holiday season in beautiful, historic downtown New Bern, it’s Pancakes for PIE!


On Saturday, December 10, 2016, PIE partnered with Morgan’s Tavern & Grill, 235 Craven Street to host this fun fundraiser.  Morgan’s was festively decorated for the holiday season and was the perfect setting to start the day with pancakes, bacon, sausage, fruit, orange juice, coffee, and water.


Don Brinkley, PIE Board President explains, “This event was an excellent opportunity for our community to show their support for Craven County Schools.  Morgan’s generously donated all proceeds from the breakfast to PIE, who will use the funds to support our local schools through PIE grant programs.  The Morgan’s staff along with PIE volunteers consisting of teachers, school staff members, and community supporters served pancakes from 7-10 am.”


Melissa Riggle, Chair of the PIE Fund Raising Committee explains, “It is so very giving of Adam and Candice Simmons and their employees to provide the staffing, food, and venue for this event. We all know Morgan’s dishes up excellent food and our volunteers are always up for serving some ‘PIE’!  We are absolutely thrilled Morgan’s hosted Pancakes for PIE.  What a great way to start your Saturday, by bringing the whole family to spend the day in beautiful downtown New Bern!  Even Santa got in on the pancake cheer!”
