COOPERSTOWN, NY – Volunteers led by the Susquehanna SPCA along with Matt and Mary-Margaret Sohns will host a Brooks’ BBQ Chicken Dinner on Friday, February 8 at Christ Episcopal Church to benefit the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
This event, part of Cooperstown Winter Carnival 2019, will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the church Parish Hall at 69 Fair Street. Dinners – eat in or to go – will include a chicken half, baked potato, cole slaw, roll, butter, salad, dessert and cider for the suggested donation of $10.
“Last year, the Susquehanna SPCA cared for 777 animals, up from 620 in 2017. This significant increase in animals saved would not be possible without support from generous volunteers, community members and businesses,” said Executive Director Stacie Haynes.
Meals can be reserved in advance by calling (607) 547-8111 or (607) 547-9555. Tickets can be purchased at Church & Scott pharmacy, 5396 NY-28, at the shelter, 4841 State Highway 28, or at the door until sold out. Advance registration/purchase is appreciated.
Proceeds from the dinner will go toward shelter expenses and programs. Last year’s event raised more than $4,000.
In operation since 1917, the Susquehanna SPCA is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization committed to caring for homeless, surrendered, and seized companion animals and finding them loving, forever homes. For more information or to donate, visit www.sqspca.org
