To the editor:
A big thank you to Deb Cole of Bert's Pine Bay Gallery for the wonderful benefit she ran for C.A.T.S. It was a fun evening with wine, cheese, fruit, cookies and a very generous group of people bidding on the donated items.
It could not have been successful without the items donated by Bert's Pine Bay Gallery, Deb Cole, Doc Watson's Liquor Store, Dot Birmingham, Fred's Cookies, Marie Cahill, Mel Meo, Pine Island Veterinary and Winn-Dixie. We also had monetary donations given by: Mr. & Mrs. Orion Anderson, Jim Dillon, Mr. & Mrs. John Dooley, Mr. & Mrs. T. Kozonecki, Dian Luther, Kathlene Malone, Mr. & Mrs. A. Tomacheck, Mr. & Mrs. P. Tribbe.
Thank you all so very much for your generosity. The $800 raised that evening has already taken care of 17 healthier, happy cats.
Once again, many thanks.
