PICOR Foundation Kicks Off Quest to Raise $35,000 for Tucson Youth

For 32 years, the Palo Verde Kiwanis Club sponsored a fall event raising in excess of $300,000 for Tucson charities. In 1994, when the club ceased to operate, PICOR formed a foundation to enable this endeavor to continue for years to come. The 2011 event will be held October 9th in Tucson’s Reid Park at Ramada #1 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm with performances by the Tucson Girls Chorus Ladybugs and youth Mariachi performers. Three bucks buys a full breakfast with all-you-can-eat pancakes, plus sausage and milk, with coffee donated and served by Starbucks. Of course, we’re happy to take additional donations for the kids in any amount.

Because PICOR contributes the labor and supplies, 100% of funds raised are donated to youth-serving charities. In 2010 the Pancake Breakfast raised over $33,500 and nearly 1,700 people attended the Breakfast staffed by PICOR employees and their family members. In its 18 years of existence, over $487,500 has been raised and donated to various charities benefiting disadvantaged youth in the Tucson community.

Some of the programs our 2010 grants supported provided basic needs to children such as diapers, blankets, shoes, and clothing; school supplies; books and literacy; arts program scholarships; teen homeless and pregnancy interventions and much more.

Our goal is to reach out to those charities that are generally lesser known within the community and/or those where our grants up to $3,000 will have the largest impact.

Donors who contribute $150 or more receive recognition in a full-page ad paid for by PICOR Commercial Real Estate and receive 60 tickets to the Pancake Breakfast. Patrons donating $300 or more are recognized on a poster displayed at the event and receive a minimum of 120 tickets. Donors who give $600 are considered benefactors, receiving 240 tickets and recognition in print media advertisement following the event.
