Nelson SPCA dinner set for Sunday

This Sunday, the Nelson branch of the BC SPCA will be holding its third annual Spay-ghetti and No Balls fundraising dinner

This Sunday, the Nelson branch of the BC SPCA will be holding its third annual Spay-ghetti and No Balls fundraising dinner in the Hume Room of the Hume Hotel.

In addition to a delicious spaghetti, chicken, and salad dinner, guests will be treated to musical entertainment from local band Casimir Funk. The meat is locally and ethically raised and tasty vegetarian options will also be available.

Guests are encouraged to come early to bid on some wonderful silent auction and raffle prizes.

“Almost every business in town came through for us when we asked them,” says Denise Maglio, the community council chair.

“We just hope that the support from the public in terms of coming out to the event will be similarly inspiring.”

Just a few of the many prizes available are a bed and breakfast getaway, spa packages, dog training certificates and some big surprise items.

The dinner was originally conceived in 2009 to jumpstart the branch’s low-income spay/neuter program, catnsip/dogsnip. That program is well underway and a big success, but the branch still needs help to maintain it and to pay for their ever rising spay and neuter bill.

“We spend over $30,000 a year on spay and neuter expenses,” says acting branch manager Rob Andrew. “In addition to controlling pet overpopulation, spaying and neutering can help solve certain health and behavioural problems which makes pets less adoptable.”

The Nelson adoption centre not only adopts animals to loving homes, they create a compassionate community in many different ways. Through the centre, they provide humane education programs such as a summer camps and school visits, reunite lost pets back to their homes, provide low income spay/neuters, and respond to cruelty complaints to make sure that all animals have a voice.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for cocktails and the silent auction, while dinner begins at 7. The dress code is casual and there is a cash bar.

Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at either the Hume Hotel or at the Nelson Adoption Centre, located at 520-C Falls Street, off Baker and above the Savoy Bowling Lanes.

For further information, please contact the Nelson BC SPCA at 250-352-7178.
