Baseball Pancake Breakfast
Colfax High’s benefit Baseball Pancake Breakfast is set for Saturday, Feb. 18 at Colfax High School from 8 a.m. to noon.  The breakfast is held to help raise funds for the school’s varsity and JV baseball teams.
One of the prize silent auction items at the upcoming breakfast will be an autographed Madison Bumgarner 2014 World Series MVP baseball. Only 50 of the signed baseballs were authenticated by the San Francisco left-handed pitcher after the Giants defeated the Kansas City Royals to win the 2014 World Series.
Tickets are $7 per person and can be purchased from Colfax High baseball players or at the door.
