Cure the Critters Fundraiser A Success

The Scottsville area community showed strong support for homeless animals at the May 20 barbecue benefit held to raise funds for Palmyra’s Caring for Creatures animal sanctuary and its Medical Needs Fund.  Cure the Critters event sponsor Buddy’s Banging Que served up a “sell-out” 270 barbecue sandwich plates, for which appreciative diners dropped $2471 into the Caring for Creatures donation jar at the end of the food line.  And there was more to it than the great food.

A fun time was had by the event attendees, as they enjoyed live music by local artists Four Hits and a Miss and Ethan and His Keyboards; held, hugged and petted adorable puppies that motivated five spontaneous adoption applications; judged a pet fashion contest; and viewed displays exhibited by several local service organizations.

Caring for Creatures President Mary K. Birkholz was moved to say “Even after 30 years of doing this work, I am always moved by the generosity of others and the deep caring so many in our central Virginia community have for animals — especially those who have been neglected or abandoned. All of us at CFC send our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this event possible.”
