Help Hinckley Welcome Visitors and the Annual Return of the Buzzards with Buzzard Day Sponsorships

Hinckley, Ohio – “Home of the Buzzards” – has drawn thousands of people from near and far to the 5-mile square township in northeast Ohio mid-March every year since the first Buzzard Day in 1957, thanks to the Great Hinckley Hunt legend, accounting for the annual return of the buzzards.

 

The All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Breakfast Scholarship Fundraiser sells around 1800 tickets, and is the centerpiece event, complimented by a day long craft fair, live buzzard educational presentations, a mini-carnival, and other free entertainment.

Local volunteers from civic groups, churches, scout organizations, fire and police departments, as well as committed community members, work together to welcome Buzzard Day visitors the first Sunday on or after March 15 each year.

Thanks to Buzzard Day Sponsorships, we doubled the number of scholarships awarded last year. Instead of two Five Hundred Dollar scholarships, the Chamber wrote scholarship checks to four recipients.

The Chamber also donates to local charities, the police and fire departments, as we are able.

How to Help

The Hinckley Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, which seeks donations to cover the expenses associated with the pancake breakfast: pancake mix, sausages, coffee, juice, milk, syrup, disposable plates-cutlery-napkins-placemats, cleaning supplies, traffic control, insurance, advertising & printing.

Sponsors will be recognized in all advertising, promotional materials and in signage throughout the venue the day of the event.

This banner (above) was displayed in the cafeteria as well as on table signs at every table.
