Rotary Club’s Pancake Palooza 2013 set for Feb. 19

In a tradition now 57 years old, the Rotary Club of Weatherford is preparing for its annual Pancake Supper.

Dubbed Pancake Palooza 2013, this year’s event will feature all the elements the Weatherford community has come to love: pancakes, bacon, a silent auction, a raffle for a Holland grill and the opportunity to support the Rotary Club in its mission to serve the community.

However, this year the event will have an added twist designed to allow the Rotary Club to help even more local students through scholarships, literacy initiatives, and school-readiness programs. That twist: corporate partners, and there is still time for local businesses to get involved.

On Tuesday, Feb. 19, Pancake Palooza 2013 will be held in the cafeteria at Weatherford High School from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. At last year’s event, Rotarians served pancakes to more than 1,650 people, and the club is hoping that number might increase this year. According to this year’s event coordinator and the club’s president-elect Sheri Campbell-Husband, that presents a unique opportunity for local businesses to contribute to a worthy cause and get their brand in front of a lot of people.

“Each corporate partner for Pancake Palooza 2013 will receive recognition and benefits, dependent upon the amount or cash value of its donation,” Campbell-Husband said. “The event will also be advertised in multiple newspapers, on the web (including Facebook), on local radio and through promotional posters hung in businesses, schools and government offices throughout the community.”

Additionally, corporate partners will be given tickets to the Pancake Supper, with the number of those tickets depending upon the donor level.

Several local businesses have already signed on to support Pancake Palooza 2013 through monetary or in-kind donations. IHOP of Weatherford, Oak Farms Dairy and Mesquite Pit have all donated food and drinks for the supper.
