Kentucky School for the Deaf to hold annual Pancake and Sausage Day

Silent and live auctions will be held during event

January 31, 2012

Girls in Tech Ed class at Kentucky School for the Deaf repaired and refinished this Victorian oak bench that was once used in Kerr Hall Chapel at KSD. The bench is one of several items available at a live auction during KSD's annual Pancake and Sausage Day Friday.

Kentucky School for the Deaf’s annual Pancake and Sausage Day begins 6:30 a.m. Friday.

The event, which kicks off KSD’s Winter Homecoming festivities, will last until 1:30 p.m. Meals cost $5 each.

Thirty-two years ago a Kentucky School for the Deaf parent Sue Gill organized the first KSD Pancake and Sausage Day as a school fundraiser. Gill continued organizing the major fundraising event until 1998, when it was dropped.

Six years later, in 2004, KSD staff member Rhonda Bodner took charge and the tradition resumed. A KSD staff committee is in charge this year.

The Pancake and Sausage Day will include a silent auction featuring theme baskets and donated items by KSD supporters, including Centre College, Sorenson Communications, GoGo Gorillas, Dr. Clay Warren, Lowrey Jackson and others.

Two baskets for UK and U-of-L supporters include basketball tickets. Other themes include new baby, movies and munchies, Valentine’s sweethearts, and rest and relaxation. Silent auction bids can be placed until 1:30 p.m.

At 1:30 p.m., Betsy Wilson and Tony Wilson of CENTURY 21/Wilson Realty and Auction Co. in Danville will conduct a live auction. Items to be auctioned include a limited-edition framed print donated by Keeneland; two Kentucky State Park golf packages; a weekend at the Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington including two rounds of golf and breakfast; artwork from Pat Hays, a Lucky Dog BBQ party for 30, prepared and delivered; an Indianapolis Colts collection signed by Jacob Tamme; and a landscape design by Tim Barringer.

Carpentry and woodworking students under Jay Cloud’s direction created ornamental, unusual handcrafted live auction items. They include a storage bench made from materials salvaged from old Lee Hall (razed in 2010); a multipaned mirror created from an old Lee window; and an antique ornamental oak bench with wrought iron legs from Kerr Hall (razed in the 1970s).

Raffle tickets can be purchased ahead of time or at the door on Friday for $1 each. Hourly drawings will be held for prizes such as $100, an HD TV or a Kindle Fire.  Ticket holders do not have to be present to win raffle prizes. This year, for the first time, pancake and sausage meals will be available for carryout. Each order is $5 and includes food and drink. For carryout, call (859)  239-7017, ext. 2711 at least 30 minutes before you plan to pick up meals.
