$1 contribution will be made to the Canadian Cancer Society from each Sunset Grill pancake sold.

On this day, guests may enjoy Sunset Grill’s signature buttermilk pancakes for only a loonie in support of CCS and Canadians living with cancer. All Sunset Grill franchised locations across Ontario, Alberta and New Brunswick will be participating in the event.

A $1 contribution will be made to CCS from each Sunset Grill pancake sold to help fund important research and programs for people affected by cancer and their families. 2024 marks the restaurant chain’s 14th year hosting the fundraiser.

“Sunset Grill has always been dedicated to giving back to the communities we serve,” said Angelo Christou, founder and CEO of Sunset Grill Restaurants Ltd. “Now entering our 14th year, our Pancake Tuesday fundraiser is an event we very much look forward to as it brings people together in support of such an important cause.”

To date, more than $191,000 has been raised for CCS since the launch of the campaign in 2009.

“The annual Pancake Tuesday fundraiser is such a fantastic (and delicious!) way to bring communities together and raise funds to support those impacted by cancer,” said Michelle Duggan, VP, Partnerships, Canadian Cancer Society. “The Canadian Cancer Society is grateful for this initiative and the dedication of the Sunset Grill team for raising awareness for our cause and organization.”

For schools and organizations looking to place bulk orders of pancakes, Sunset Grill has published a pre-order form, available HERE. Orders must be received no later than February 9, 2024, at 3 p.m.
