The Sun letter to the editor: Breakfast with the Bunny a success


The eleventh annual Breakfast with the Bunny, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Hamburg, was held on April 12 at the Oakwood Manor on Lakeview Road in the town of Hamburg. This event is considered to be both a community event and a fundraiser to celebrate the Easter season and the arrival of Spring.

As in other years, children and parents had as much food and beverages as they wished. The children visited with the Easter Bunny, who gave them a plastic egg filled with candy. The hall was decorated in a manner that allowed many opportunities for photos, in addition to photos with the bunny, at no cost. Face-painting was available and was provided by the Youth Engaged in Service club of Hamburg.

One of the major events at the breakfast was the theme basket auction. This year, there were 60 wonderful theme baskets, with no basket worth less than $50 and most worth about $100 or more. There were baskets designed for children, as well as adults, and once again, the price of the tickets was very reasonable. Theme baskets and gift certificates were donated by local merchants and Rotary Club members. Another feature was a raffle, with the first prize being four select tickets to Beauty and the Beast at Shea’s Theatre on May 3. The second prize was an autographed picture of Fred Jackson. A 50/50 raffle was also held.

All Rotary Club members participated in the event. Chair-people were: Pat Castiglia, general chair; Sid Jack, chair of decorations; Tom Swarthout, theme basket chair; Chi Chi Hoelscher, chair of the beverage center; Jeff Kusche, chair of kitchen preparations; Kent Hilton, chair of the raffles and Lisa Avery, ticket chair.

Funds raised go to support the club’s charitable giving, including funds for: Warm the Children effort, the Hamburg counseling center, the scholarship fund, the Hamburg Library building fund, as well as other local charities seeking support from the Rotary.
