WESTFIELD, NJ — Join the Rotary Club of Westfield for its 48th Annual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, March 1, from 8 a.m. until noon in the Westfield High School cafeteria. Tickets are $10 at the door and proceeds will support the Rotary Scholarship Fund and Rotary Community Service Grants.
The event will feature a 50-50 cash raffle, live entertainment by the Westfield High School and Intermediate School Jazz Bands and a variety of other school extra-curricular performing musical groups. A children’s fair, sponsored by the Westfield Area Y, with Moonwalk, face painting, spin art, balloons and many other activities will also be available for families to enjoy.
Local youth organizations including the Westfield High School Rotary Interact Club and Elementary School Early Act Clubs, Westfield Area Y Leaders Club and Black Achievers Club and Boy Scouts have volunteered to support the pancake breakfast.
The event is the Rotary Club’s major fundraiser for the year, according to event chairman Michael Miller.
“Last year, we gave over $60 thousand in community grants and over $90 thousand in scholarships to Westfield students,” said Miller. “Over the years, we have given nearly $3 million to Westfield students. And so, when the Westfield community supports Rotary by participating in Pancake Day, everyone in town is a potential beneficiary. We know our tradition will continue for many years to come.”
The Rotary Club of Westfield meets every Tuesday for lunch at the Westfield Area Y. Guests and prospective members are always welcome. For more information, visit http://www.westfieldrotary.com/.
