Save our Sausage Haus fundraiser aims to help rebuild Slaton business

Posted:
SLATON, Texas -

 

Three weeks ago, Klemke's Sausage Haus and Slaton Family Medical Clinic were destroyed in a fire.

Klemke's was a staple of the Slaton community, having been in business for 31 years. 

Now, the town hopes to help the Klemkes back on their feet.

"When something bad happens at home, everybody chips in and helps," Isaac Arellano, with Pitforks and Smokerings BBQ, said.

The Save our Sausage Haus fundraiser on Saturday brought businesses from across the South Plains to the Slaton Town Square.

"Everybody was willing to donate their proceeds to help benefit the Klemkes," Jason Corley, Lubbock County Commissioner of Precinct 2, said. "So you know, just the whole community's been pulling together and trying to help them get back in business."

The owner, Rodney Klemke, hopes to rebuild his business, Corley said.

"Hopefully, right back in the same location where he was, so we all just kind of came together to help him with that effort," Corley said.

Live music, a raffle, a silent auction and a fireworks show all went toward rebuilding efforts.

Arellano encourages everyone to support local businesses, and to support a "family member."

"Klemke's has been a big part of us, (Rodney Klemke) helped us out a lot. He's helped everybody in Slaton," Arellano said. "There's nothing else to do but to lend your hand out to another family member."

The goal for the fundraiser was $20,000.
