What a wonderful time we all had last Saturday at our City Kitty Fundraiser! It was a gorgeous day to celebrate the first day of Spring at the beautiful All Life Center! We enjoyed the amazing talent of pianist Genene Blackwell. There were lots of tasty goodies, including a Dove Chocolate Tasting Party & organic locally produced wines. We wish to thank Kroger, Trader Joe's, and Natural State Wines for their kind donations of food and drinks. Also thanks toDeb Weber, our Dove Chocolatier! We appreciate her kindness in donating 80% of sales to our Fundraiser! And special thanks to Dean, Dave, and Pia, without whose help we couldn't have pulled this off!
The lovely Community Room was packed with feline fanatics & other animal lovers who supported our Silent Auction (some great buys!) and had a ball making cat toys! We saw old friends and made many new ones! All in all, we raised about $700 plus over 140 pounds of cat & kitty food for the PetPromise Pet Food Pantry! These donations will make it possible to spay and neuter many free roaming cats, especially important at this time of year. The food donations will assist those individuals who need temporary assistance to feed their cats & kittens.
Thank you to all those who attended and who donated online! YOU make this important work possible, and provide support to those special individuals who operate the TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program. If you are interested in volunteering with PetPromise, please contact Amy Bull, Director & Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are many ways in which you can assist to improve the health and well being of cats and kittens here in Greater Columbus.
