---- — Hy-Vee is giving customers the opportunity to “roundup” for Pancake Day. The promotion allows customers the opportunity to round their purchase up to the nearest dollar with proceeds going to Pancake Day.
“Pancake Day is important to Centerville because, not only does it bring in thousands of visitors, it helps promote community pride. Hy-Vee is proud to be a major supporter of Pancake Day again this year and we hope that the community will join us by participating in the ‘roundup’ fundraising promotion,” said Tom Crocker, Centerville Hy-Vee store director.
Pancake Day is Sept. 28. Each year, the Centerville-Rathbun Lake Area Chamber of Commerce must raise about $25,000 through business and community donations in order to continue Pancake Day. Expenses include supplies for the tent, entertainment, float prizes, portable toilets, advertising, repairs to equipment and insurance. Hy-Vee is the top sponsor of Pancake Day each year.
To donate, participants simply inform the Hy-Vee checker to round up for Pancake Day. The fundraiser will run until Sept. 28.
