Article Text:Breakfast to help Ellis County United Way "Eating their way toward the goal" will be the theme for a United Way of Ellis County benefit breakfast hosted by Golden Corral, 383 Mopar Drive. As a kickoff to Fort Hays State University's Homecoming weekend, FHSU cheerleaders will be on hand and university football players will wait tables at the event.

"We want to engage our athletes in more community service," said Curtis Hammeke, FHSU athletic director. "I believe very strongly in the benefit of community service, the benefit not only to the community, but also the athletes." Golden Corral chose a Friday, a day the restaurant ordinarily does not serve breakfast, to host the event.

"We appreciate Golden Corral's willingness to participate in this year's campaign and we are looking forward to a long-lasting partnership that will benefit the community, the United Way and Golden Corral," said Dennis Brumbaugh, 2004-2005 United Way of Ellis County campaign chair. "Any time we can get more people involved in any aspect of community support, through volunteering time or contributions, the whole community comes out ahead," Brumbaugh said. Breakfast will be served from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. Friday. Tickets are $5 each and are available in advance from the United Way or can be purchased at the door. All ticket proceeds and tips go to the United Way of Ellis County.

Door prizes will be given away. A Wal-Mart gift card will be given to the FHSU student organization that has the most members present at 8:30 a.m. Money raised during the United Way campaign helps support a network of 16 member agencies that provide assistance and change lives throughout Ellis County.
