Every year, WBT AM/FM’s John Hancock celebrated Father’s Day in March with a special broadcast in memory of his father. Charlotte area listeners are invited to call in to share their own stories in what has become an inspiring and heart-warming event. To celebrate with him, WBT AM/FM made it a bigger event in the style John would want in order to give back to the community. John Hancock’s Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast was on Saturday, March 16, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at a local church.
We honored fathers everywhere. Dads attended with their kids, and kids brought their dads to enjoy pancakes served with bacon, coffee and juice. Admission was free and the entire WBT lineup came out in support of John Hancock’s effort.
John recruited the best team of servers in Charlotte, including Boy Scout Pack 34 and WBT AM/FM’s Bo Thompson, Jim Szoke, Keith Larson, Brad Krantz and Britt Whitmire. The first 50 people who registered received a John Hancock coffee mug and a ticket to the Charlotte Knights’ Father’s Day game on Sunday, June 16!
Donations were collected for the Men’s Shelter of Charlotte.
