"The Toluca Lake Chamber of Commerce appreciates all that NBCUniversal does to support the Toluca Lake community. Their involvement in the Annual Pancake Breakfast has helped increase the monies raised for Fire Station #86 and the Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemen’s Fund. Also, this year NBCUniversal brought the Minion characters from the movie Despicable Me 2 to the breakfast, which was a great hit with everyone!"
