Beyond the Pancakes
The sad news is we are canceling our annual Father’s Day Pancake breakfast with the health and safety of everyone in mind.
The good news is we have come up with a way to raise money without having our traditional pancake breakfast, by utilizing an on-line fundraising service called Rallyup.  (Please note:  we originally planned to have a raffle option, but this has been canceled because it isn’t legal to do on-line in NYS). 
The community needs are greater than ever as a result of COVID-19. 100% of the funds donated will go to local food pantries and school and community outreach meal programs. (Please be aware: because we are utilizing a free service, it may either prompt or attempt to add a tip to your donation.  Look carefully for this and delete.  We do not benefit from the tips; they go to the service).
Here is how it works:
  • Go to  for the easy details.
  • Choose a donation amount, or create your own amount.  At checkout, watch for the tip option and delete.
  • Share this with everyone you would normally invite to the breakfast (and more!)
Rotary will surprise some donors after the campaign by giving out some Skaneateles Chamber of Commerce gift certificates (thanks to donations from generous sponsors).  This is intended to infuse dollars back to business owners who have been hit hard by the virus as well. 
These are unprecedented times – our community needs Rotary more than ever!  And we need your help to make this successful.  In addition to donating, you can help by encouraging your friends and family to give as well.  Please share this message in any way you choose (via email or Facebook or word-of-mouth!)
