Alpha Kappa Alpha celebrates Juneteenth with pancake breakfast fundraiser

WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - In celebration of Juneteenth, one group of people spent their Saturday morning making a difference.

The Alpha Kappa Alpha Pancake Breakfast was held at Booker T. Washington Elementary School.

Hundreds came out to enjoy bacon, sausage, and of course pancakes.

Proceeds went to several great causes and to fund scholarships.

"Our big project is scholarships," said Rosie Flanigan. "We always want children to go to that next level and we know that if they are gonna get there education is the key."

There was also a silent auction at the event.

Alpha Kappa Alpha has done many projects benefiting the community like keeping the emergency pantry filled at the Martin Luther King Center, which they said they were going to restock after Saturday's breakfast.
