Me on fruit duty, Brett Harris on cheese duty.

I’ve always work as a server at the annual Red Stocking Breakfasta fundraiser for the Kansas Children’s Service League. This year’s is from  6:30 to 9:30 a.m. Thursday at Carlos O’Kelly’s, 7703 E. Douglas.

I love this breakfast not only because it’s for a good cause but also because it features a buffet of food so delicious and decadent (biscuits and gravy, Mexican breakfast casserole, cinnamon rolls, etc.) , you won’t be able to eat again for the rest of the day. This is a problem for me since our newsroom holiday lunch is just a few hours later, but oh well. I will make the sacrifice and pig out twice. It’s for a good cause, after all.

All the servers are recognizable politicians and media personalities. I’ll be on duty from 8 to 8:45 a.m.

Proceeds raised go toward KCSL programs and services. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. Children age 10 and under eat free. Advance tickets are available online at
