The deadline is 3 p.m. today for fans to purchase a chance to be one of about 150 who will be part of Monday’s fundraiser for the Kings’ Dustin Penner at the Westchester IHOP.
Those who go to www.lakings.com/pancakes can spend $10, $25 or $50 for packages that include chances to win the breakfast with Penner. All proceeds go to the Kings Care Foundation.
The 75 winners (who can bring a guest) will be notified by 5 p.m. today.
The background on this (linked here): Penner missed a Kings game last month when he threw out his back while at home eating pancakes.
Really, a pancake-related injury?
Once word got out what happened, he decided to get ahead of it by hosting a pancake breakfast to raise money for the team’s non-profit foundation.
The breakfast is Monday from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Westchester IHOP (8600 S. Sepulveda Blvd.)
