Crowds of people lined up at Bailey's Pub Monday for the seventh annual Rescue 33 Buffet Breakfast, which raised about $18,000.

Owner Ted Bailey said he expects the total to surpass $18,000. He said they used 3,000 eggs, 140 pounds of ham, 250 pounds of bacon, 60 pounds of sausage, 160 pounds of potatoes, 900 biscuits, 180 pounds of gravy, 800 Danish, 260 pounds of fruit and 180 gallons each of coffee and orange juice.

Bailey said he will be back next year to help with the breakfast, which is being taken on by the new owners of Bailey's Pub, Tim and Shelly Burger of Pekin.

"I'd like to thank everyone for their support over the years," said Bailey, who will live in Morton with his new wife, Marty.
