The Hesston Lions raised a roaring $7,000 at its Pancake Feed on Saturday, with hundreds of diners served.
According to Lion Ken Schwanke, the Lions raised $5,000 in the donation box, and another $2,000 came by the way of corporate donations.
Proceeds from the pancake feed will benefit the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains.
Arboretum Director Scott Vogt said the funds will be allocated for the Prairie Discovery Lab, an educational facility near the greenhouse.
The first classes will be held in the Prairie Discovery Lab in February.
