Pancake fundraiser helps out families in need

In Pueblo, people came together to help the families of three teens killed in an accident.

The Applebee's at the intersection of Northern Avenue and Pueblo Boulevard stands just feet from the site of that crash last weekend.

Three Alamosa girls were killed and two other teens were injured by a suspected drunk driver.

Saturday, the restaurant wanted to help out by hosting a donation pancake breakfast complete with a silent auction and face painting.

"I couldn't be prouder of Pueblo right now," said Jennifer Priest, General Manager at Applebee's. "Everybody that's been out today has been so gracious. It's just been a great time. So appreciative of everybody that has come out."

Several hundred people came to the fundraiser, and they hope to make at least $2,000.

All money will go to the five families involved.
