HAWAII KAI (KHNL) - Many families spent the day sharing a meal with dad.

For some local fathers, that meant enjoying a pancake breakfast that also benefits a good cause.  Steaming hot pancakes covered in syrup. A side of sausage and scrambled eggs.

"Oh the pancakes are awesome we do a pretty good job on the pancakes," said Lions Club President Dave Osaki.

Families enjoy the annual Father's Day Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the Lions Club at Kaiser High School.

"Fathers Day is a tradition even before being a father we would be coming here for breakfast just to support the Lions Club," said Wedge Yee.

They serve about 3,500 complete breakfast platters.  And the proceeds benefit the community

"It's the schools here in Hawaii Kai as well Hawaii Kai Library," said Osaki.

A day for fathers to reflect on what it means to be a dad.

"Being able to spend all your free time with them, that is rewarding beyond anything else. That's the quality I really enjoy," said Yee.

Three generations of the Hill family were here as a Father's Day tradition.

"We had so much fun we said we got to make sure that grandpa joins us for our second annual visit," said Skip Hill.

And some solid advice from grandpa

"Do what's right in the world and make it a better place," said David Hill.

The Lions Club Fathers Day Pancake Breakfast fundraiser has been their main source of donations for 33 years, bringing hundreds of thousands of dollars to assist the East Oahu community.
