Pancake Tuesday is back at Sunset Grill Restaurants in Oakville, Mississauga and across Ontario.

The annual fundraiser in support of the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) returns Feb. 21, 2023 after a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Shrove Tuesday, customers will be able to purchase pancakes for only a loonie in support of CCS and Canadians living with cancer.

Sunset Grill will contribute the $1 from each order to the CCS to help fund research and programs for people affected by cancer and their families.

This mark the chain’s 13 year of hosting the fundraiser, which is also held in Alberta and New Brunswick.

“Our Pancake Tuesday fundraiser in support of the Canadian Cancer Society has always been an important initiative for our organization,” said Angelo Christou, founder and CEO of Sunset Grill Restaurants Ltd.

“We are proud to resume the event and welcome new and returning guests to our restaurants for an experience they can count on, in support of a great cause.”

The all-day breakfast franchise has raised more than $166,000 for cancer since the launch of the campaign in 2009.

“The Canadian Cancer Society is thrilled that Sunset Grill will be bringing their Pancake Tuesday fundraiser back for 2023,” said Kate Porter, director, corporate partnerships. “We admire their commitment to raise funds to help change the future of cancer.”

For schools, organizations and businesses looking to place bulk orders of pancakes, Sunset Grill has published a pre-order form on its website. Orders must be received no later than Feb. 17, 2023, at 3 p.m.
