COLUMBIA, SC – Several Fatz Café locations across the state are hosting a pancake breakfast fundraiser on November 13, the Saturday following Veteran’s Day. Proceeds from the breakfast will benefit Columbia based non-profit Hidden Wounds and the immediate psychological injury treatments for veterans and military personnel in need. 13st In September alone, the organization funded the counseling needs of 30 veterans.
Last year, the event was held at the Forest Drive location in Columbia and raised $4,269.45 with the help of numerous volunteers and supporters.
This year participating locations include Columbia (Forest Dr.), North Charleston, Seneca and Conway. The services Hidden Wounds provides extend past the City of Columbia so it is important to raise awareness statewide. Fatz Café’s regional management team has provided Hidden Wounds with an
opportunity to do so.
The breakfast will be from 7-10 a.m. and will include pancakes, fresh fruit, beverage and a side item. Tickets may be purchased in advance at participating Fatz Café locations or by calling Hidden Wounds at (803)403-8460. They may also be purchased on the day of the breakfast at the door. Hidden Wounds representatives will be present at each location to answer questions.
Hidden Wounds is a non-profit 501(c)(3), founded in January 2010 by Anna Bigham. The organization’s mission is to help heroes battle the invisible war at home through providing immediate and emergency psychological treatment for veterans and military personnel suffering from PTSD, TBI, and other psychological post war challenges.
