EDCAR hosts Honor Our Troops breakfast
The El Dorado County Association of Realtors and its Honor Our Troops committee invite community members to join them for breakfast on Saturday, Jan. 25.
The “all-American breakfast” —eggs, toast, sausage, ham, hash browns, hot cakes, biscuits & gravy, juice, milk and coffee — raises funds for the committee’s care packages sent to El Dorado County soldiers serving in war zones, honorourtroops.us. New this year, enjoy a Bloody Mary with your breakfast; the cocktail will be available for purchase at the bar.
“Currently HOT sends out packages three times a year filled with cards from (El Dorado County) groups, local publications, candy, socks, toiletries, games and much more,” according to the website. “If you know of a military service person serving in one of the war zones, please contact us with their name, mailing address, their local contact person’s name, address, phone number and e-mail address.”
The Honor Our Troops breakfast runs from 7 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Veteran’s Memorial Building, 130 Placerville Drive in Placerville (next to the fairgrounds). Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children. Purchase tickets in advance by calling EDCAR at 530-676-0161 or Cyndi Romano at 916-207-4194 or buy them at the door.
El Dorado County Association of Realtors (EDCAR) is in its 11th year of supporting our soldiers through the "Honor our Troops" committee, commonly referred to as H.O.T. It is our desire to support our local military during their deployment by sending them boxes filled with supplies and thoughts from home. Any soldier who is currently in a war zone and from El Dorado County (EDC) or has family living in EDC can be added to our roster. Currently H.O.T. sends out packages 3x a year filled with cards from EDC groups, local publications, candy, socks, toiletries, games and much more. Our packages are also supported by Poor Reds of El Dorado who provides our “Yellow Ribbon Rib Eye Certificate for a complimentary meal when the service person returns or visits. We raise all of our funds locally through individual donations, Our Annual "All American Breakfast", and Annual Spaghetti Feed fund raisers. EDCAR would love to invite you as a community to join us in this worthwhile endeavor. If you know of a military service person serving in one of the war zones, please contact us with their name, mailing address, their local contact person's name, address, phone number and email address.
