Rotary Club schedules annual Bueno Brunch April 6 at El Chico

NORMAN — The Norman Rotary Club’s annual Bueno Brunch breakfast benefiting local charities is scheduled for Saturday April 6 at the El Chico Restaurant in Sooner Mall.

Scrambled eggs, sausage, tortillas, and fruit will be served from 7:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from any member of the Norman Rotary Club or at the door.

Bueno Brunch is one of the Norman Rotary Club’s annual fundraising events. Proceeds will stay in Norman, to be used to fund the Norman Rotary Club’s annual grants to assist various Norman community projects.

Each year the Norman Rotary Club receives applications from local charitable and humanitarian entities and selects from these applications projects that need assistance.

In the past, the Norman Rotary Club has given thousands of dollars in grants to such local institutions as Meals on Wheels, Big Brothers and Sisters, Center for Children and Families, and Health for Friends and Bridges. Other recent recipients are ABLE, Full Circle, CASA, the Regional Food Bank, NAIC, Girl Scouts, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Bethesda and First Choice Recovery.

Proceeds are also used to help fund the Rotary International Polio Plus project to eradicate polio throughout the world.

James Chappel, Chairman of the Bueno Brunch Committee said, “These project are excellent examples of how the Norman Rotary has helped our local community and people throughout the world.  We are happy to be a part of  projects which will help eradicate polio and give assistance to our local community efforts.”

For further information or tickets contact Chappel, at 642-7338, Tom Cooper at 366-3210 or Edward Adwon at 360-0887.
