Fargo Radio Station Hosts the Second Annual PJs & Pancakes

What better way to enjoy your breakfast than going in your pajamas?

Big 98.7 hosted their second annual PJs & Pancakes, where kids were invited to Granite City for breakfast.

From onesies to pajama pants and reindeer slippers, kids had it all.

“Getting to see how amazing the community is that we live in because people love to wrap their arms around people who are struggling,” said President of the Big Christmas Wish, Cori Jenson.

More than 200 tickets were sold for $10 each.

All of the proceeds will benefit Big 98.7’s Christmas Wish program for kids in need.

“This is something that benefits our community, so a little bit of effort for a whole lot of benefit,” said Cori.

Granite City says being a part of an event like this is truly something special.

“We had our chefs come in today at 5:30 and started working and then me and my little elves, we all got here around 7 o’clock and started getting everything set up,” said Granite City Manager, Margaret Wheller.

“Well as a business leader it’s really great for us to get involved and really help the big wish campaign and really push that charity forward,” said Executive Chef, Weston Baril.

Don’t be fooled, pancakes weren’t the only item on the menu.

“We’ve got scrambled eggs, we’ve got bacon, we’ve got sausage, we did Parmigiano-Reggiano hash browns, which are our fan favorite, and then fresh made buttermilk pancakes,” said Margaret.

“We’ve teamed up with Santa Magic as well and then they get the complimentary picture for the family,” said Cori.

“To have kids in the restaurant and smiling and having a good time and seeing Santa you know. This business is more than just getting people in and out,” said Weston.

Programs like the Big Christmas Wish make waking up early for breakfast worth it.
