(GARDEN CITY, Kan.)
A southwest Kansas holiday tradition helps long-standing community programs.
In Garden City the Red Stocking Breakfast raises money to benefit Head Start and healthy family programs. The money raised goes to local prevention and education efforts.
Organizers of the breakfast say the event helps bring more services to families and children in need.
"If we have some other services that we can offer to our families and children for preventative measures, that's what we use it for," says Sylvia Trevino with the Head Start program. "The whole idea of our program is to help families, and if we can have a little bit more of extra funding to provide that, then that's what we'll do".
The Red Stocking Breakfast starts at 7:30 Saturday morning. It will be at Lone Star Steakhouse in Garden City. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door; children 10 and under eat free.
