SafeRides of Ridgefield will hold its annual Pancake Dinner on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at the St. Stephen’s Church North Hall from 5 to 7 p.m. This is the major fundraising event for the year for the program that has provided thousands of confidential safe rides home to the youth of Ridgefield for more than 20 years. Each year more than 200 high school students volunteer to provide this important service to their peers.
The student-run program is led by a 14-member executive board, divided equally between junior and senior and male/female high school students, with advice from adult directors. At this Tuesday’s supper the executive board, with help from the Ridgefield High School Cooking Club, will prepare and serve up pancakes and bacon, coffee, juice and cookies.
