Nelson SPCA fundraiser supports farm advocacy

The BC SPCA is holding a burger and beer fundraiser on Saturday to benefit the Farm Animal Advocacy Group.

“We believe that all animals have a right to live cruelty free,” said Nelson branch manager Rob Andrew. “Our mission is to support and promote humane farming practices in the Kootenays.”

The fundraiser at Finley’s Irish Bar and Grill runs from 6 to 9 p.m. will feature cruelty-free organic BC beef with a vegan option. This is a family friendly event, so bring everyone out to support the cause.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $17 at the door, and includes a burger, beer, hi ball, wine or non-alcoholic beverage. Entertainment will be provided by the White Lightning blues band and there are prizes and raffles too.

Advanced sale tickets may be purchased from the SPCA at 520C Fall St. above Savoy Lanes, Nelson Animal Hospital, Selkirk Veterinary Hospital, Scotiabank, and Kokanee Park Marina.
