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


Durant Auto Group signed on as an Emerald Partner; Walmart of Weatherford and Walmart of Hudson Oaks are both Ruby Partners; First National Bank-Weatherford is a Diamond Partner; and Progressive Waste Solutions and PlainsCapital Bank-Weatherford are Community Champion Partners. Other in-kind donations have come from Texas Butane, which donated the Holland grill that will be raffled off at the supper, and QuickPrint of Weatherford, which has donated a significant portion of the printing needed for the event.

Campbell-Husband offered thanks to all the businesses and individuals supporting Pancake Palooza and the programs it funds.

“Our primary mission with this event is to support education and literacy programs for area youth. That is what this annual fundraiser is all about. Thanks to our corporate partners, we anticipate that the 2013 Pancake Supper will allow us to help more students than we ever have before. Rotary is about ‘Service Above Self,’ and these partners have demonstrated a commitment to that as well.”

There is still time for other businesses and individuals to help make Pancake Palooza 2013 the best pancake supper yet.

The Rotary Club of Weatherford is seeking additional corporate partners and donations of silent auction items for the event. For information about how you can help, contact Campbell-Husband at 682-229-2400 or

Tickets for Pancake Palooza 2013 will be on sale beginning Jan. 9. They may be purchased from any member of the Rotary Club or at the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce office. Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 at the door. Tickets for the Holland grill raffle are $1 each and may be purchased from Rotarians before or during the Feb. 19 supper.
