It’s time for the big FosterCat fundraiser—the annual Spaghetti Dinner!
Join the board, volunteers, foster families and friends of FosterCat on Saturday, September 11, 2010, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Wallace Memorial Presbyterian Church in Green Tree.
I’ll be at the Carnegie Arts & Heritage Festival that day, but I’ll be donating a few things—always a framed print of one of my cat paintings, and I’ll add a set of crocheted pawprints as well.
The menu includes spaghetti with a choice of either meat or meatless sauce, salad, rolls, beverage and dessert. Takeout orders will be available.
Tickets are $9 for adults and $4 for children ages 12 and under.
Helping to raise more funds in addition to the meal prices, Chinese auction items including restaurant and other gift certificates donated by local businesses will be on display, and you can also buy tickets for the 50/50 raffle. Cat toys and other items will be offered for sale at the event.
If you can’t attend but still want to help FosterCat and its network of 25 foster homes, you can always make a donation at their website, www.fostercat.org. Even if you don’t live near Pittsburgh, consider making a donation to this organization that both removes cats in peril from shelters and keeps them out of shelters in the first place, giving them a loving and comfortable foster home until a permanent home can be found.
FosterCat, Inc. is an all-volunteer 501c (3) organization formed in 1999 to provide for the temporary care and also permanent placement of homeless kittens and cats. Through its network of 25 foster homes, FosterCat has fostered and placed over 1,020 kittens and cats for permanent adoption. There is no paid staff but everyone volunteers their professional talents as well as foster talents, and the only expense outside of direct care for cats is the cost of advertising the organization for potential homes and for foster homes.
They were the recipient of the online auction of the print of “Peaches and Peonies” in honor of Peaches’ 100th birthday, and I also featured several of the cats they had in foster in June for Adopt-a-Cat Month.
Wallace Memorial Presbyterian Church is located at 1000 Green Tree Road, Pittsburgh.
