The Aiken Kidney Benefit will hold a pancake breakfast with “The Wizard of Oz” characters on Saturday from 7 to 10 a.m. at Applebee’s.

The costumed characters from the play, including Dorothy and the Scarecrow, will serve diners. But, watch out for the flying monkeys and witches; they may snatch your pancakes.

The cost is $10 per person. Tickets may be purchased at the door the morning of the breakfast.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras to take pictures of the residents of Emerald City.

The Aiken Kidney Benefit will present “The Wizard of Oz” at the URS Center for Performing Arts on Sept. 28 at 8 p.m., Sept. 29 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., Sept. 30 at 3 p.m., Oct. 5 at 8 p.m., Oct. 6 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Oct. 7 at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for seniors and children 13 and younger. Tickets may be ordered at the box office at 648-1438 or online at www.aikenkidneybenefit.com.

Applebee’s is located at 1360 Whiskey Road.

The Aiken Kidney Benefit is a local charity established in 1992 for the benefit of patients in greater Aiken, Edgefield and Barnwell counties who suffer from kidney disease, especially kidney failure.

The Benefit produces a Broadway musical every fall and a 5K Spotlight Run every spring to raise money for the charity.

One hundred percent of the money raised is used to assist patients in the community.
