Breakfast benefit set Saturday to help victim of massive stroke

From Staff Reports

June 19, 2008 - Those who enjoy pancakes can get their fill of flapjacks Saturday and help out a local family going through some tough times.

The special fundraiser breakfast planned Saturday will benefit Jerry Wayne Vititow Jr., who suffered a massive stroke in March. He has undergone much medical care since, and is currently being treated at Pate Rehabiliation center in Anna.

He is the son of Jerry Wayne Vititow Sr. and Jean Vititow. He and his wife, Michelle Mitchell Vititow, have four children, Jennifer Vititow, Amanda Bailey, Jusin Vititow and Tamara Vititow. He also has three grandchildren, Brian and Shelby Bailey, and Londyn Vititow.

Friends and family will be hosting the Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction beginning at 7 a.m. this Saturday, June 21, at the Fishin Hole Caf, located at 105 West Main St. in Cumby, for those early birds out there. They will continue serving until 11 a.m. for folks who enjoy sleeping in a bit. A silent auction featuring donated items will also be held.

All proceeds will go to Vititow to help with costs of medical bills and equipment he will need in order to come home.

For directions or more information, call 903-458-0333.
