Take Mom to a Delicious Brunch, Help Kids in Need

Knights of Columbus group in Pittsburgh's South Hills offer a fully catered breakfast

If you're like most moms you love it when you don't have to cook, and you like to help kids. So this year's Mother's Day breakfast organized by the The Knights of Columbus Gilmary Council in the South Hills of Pittsburgh is a great alternative to crowded -- or even sold out -- Mother's Day brunch at a restaurant. Plus proceeds benefit the group's charities.

Breakfast will be served Sunday May 12 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Faith Formation Center at St. Albert the Great in Baldwin Borough. Tickets at the door are $15 for adults and $8 for ages 3 to 10. Each mom at the breakfast will receive a carnation and a chocolate rose.

Program Director Mike Hines tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette a professional caterer, Signature Servings will cater the full buffet breakfast with quiche, herb chicken, eggs, sausage, bacon, ham, pancakes, breakfast potatoes and fruits. There will also be an omelet station, and Bloody Marys and Mimosas in addition to coffee, tea and orange juice. "People don't feel like they're being fundraised because they're enjoying a good meal." said Hines.

The Knights of Columbus will serve and Cub Scouts will bus tables so mom can completely relax.

The group's Coats for Kids is one of the charities the breakfast will benefit.

Diners can go away with full stomachs, and feeling good that they're helping the Knights' of Columbus group's charities. "We work hard to raise the money to turn around and give it away," said Hines. "It's a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun."
