MACOMB, IL -- Let the Western Illinois University Dance Marathon take care of your dinner plans Thursday, Nov. 2.

From 4-8:30 p.m. Nov. 2, the WIU Dance Marathon will host a pancake dinner at the Macomb American Legion, 221 E. Washington St., as part of the organization's year-round effort to raise money for Children's Miracle Network hospitals, St. Louis Children's Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon. The year-long event culminates Feb. 24, 2018, with the 12-hour Dance Marathon, which honors the 12-hour shifts of doctors and nurses, as well as children who are unable to stand.

The "breakfast for dinner" event includes all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage and orange juice. Tickets are $5 per person in advance and available from any Dance Marathon leadership and executive board member or $7 at the door. Contact for advance tickets.

Western's Dance Marathon is entering its fifth year on the WIU campus, with this year's goal set at $150,000. Donations are welcome, and may be made by visiting or emailing Last year's event raised $123,200.
