Join us for our Annual Pancake Tuesday Fundraiser at Sunset Grill

All franchised Sunset Grill breakfast restaurants across Ontario, Canada participate in an Annual Pancake Tuesday Fundraiser event on Shrove Tuesday, where we serve our signature buttermilk pancakes for only $1. We do this in support of Canadian Cancer Society programs and research, and to raise awareness for the cause. A $1 contribution is made to the Canadian Cancer Society from each Sunset Grill pancake sold.

Our next Pancake Tuesday event will take place on Tuesday March 4, 2025.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our valued guests, dedicated franchisees, and amazing staff members who have contributed to this very important initiative since the launch of the campaign in 2009. Together we have raised more than $191,000 for the cause and Canadians living with cancer.

A special mention goes out to our incredible suppliers Waffles International and Lynch for donating product to the event. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your unwavering support.

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
