Sunshine Club Raises Funds With Pancake Breakfast at Oasis

Hundreds of residents of the Oasis community of Menifee attended the Sunshine Club's annual Pancake Breakfast fundraiser event Sunday.
Members of the Sunshine Club, a service organization with more than 100 members, hosted a fundraising event and served breakfast to residents of the Oasis community of Menifee Sunday morning in the group's 11th annual Pancake Breakfast.

The Oasis ballroom was packed for the sold-out event, in which breakfast and raffle tickets raised funds to help the Sunshine Club continue serving its residents. The event had a "Back to the '50s" theme, with decorations from that time period and a slide show picturing Oasis residents as they looked in their youth.

According to Sharon Corpel, the Sunshine Club provides residents with medical equipment, food and basically whatever is needed. The pancake breakfast is annually the club's biggest fundraiser.

"We do anything for our neighbors," Corpel said. "We're all volunteers."

In addition to loaning out wheelchairs and other medical equipment, the club provides flowers and comfort for residents during times of bereavement.

Oasis is a gated community with more than 1,100 homes.

Residents filled a row of bags with raffle tickets for various items. Other items were for sale.
