If there is a community more vibrant, joyful, connected, supportive and compassionate than Boise, Idaho – I wanna know about it!
I attended the Treasure Valley United Way’s 3rd Annual Flapjack feed this morning and was bowled over by the love. I felt connected to my community and proud to be a Boisean. I’ll estimate there were a thousand plus people there while my buddy, Homer and I were enjoying the breakfast feast. We arrived an hour after the start so people were leaving and even more coming in as we gorged on delicious pancakes, eggs, cheesy potatoes and every kind of fruit dish imaginable – all for $5.
Channel 7 (KTVB) were there and the event was hosted by the beautiful Carolyn Holly and the inimitable Larry Gebert; both are popular beloved Treasure Valley icons.
The event was both entertaining and educational as the United way premiered their latest video depicting the stats of issues challenging our community and the intentions of United Way to address those issues.
