PCAS Fundraising Table at November 18, 2017, Crisis Intervention Holiday Craft Fair.
Are you planning to drop by the Cody Auditorium on ‘Turkey Shoot Day’ to check out the craft items for that perfect Christmas gift or stocking-stuffer? Be sure to come by the Park County Animal Shelter table which will be located by the stage, near the west exit door. This will be the 8th year that Mary Whitmore has organized this fundraiser for the animal shelter, offering handmade crafts and homemade treats for both people and pets.
If you consider chocolates one of the basic food groups, then get there early to make your selection from Mary’s array of handcrafted Digger’s Delightful Chocolates. Perhaps you’re looking for something for your pup; if so, don’t miss out on Jan Jackson’s homemade dog treats. But if you’re a cat person, you might want to give your furry friend one of Mary Schock’s handmade kitty toys filled with Mary’s own homegrown super-duper catnip that will have your cat acting like a kitten again. And speaking of playful cats, most of our feline friends like to play chase and capture, so if you enjoy playing with your cat, then a colorful homemade yarn pom-pom on a sturdy length of fishing line may be just what you’re looking for. If none of these appeal to your tastes, then be sure to look over the selection of handcrafted sewn and knitted items that are provided for your pleasure by the Knitting Ladies of Cody.
Tickets for this year’s raffle gift will be available at the PCAS craft fair table, and you don’t have to be present for the drawing to win. This is always a popular item, so be sure to stop by and see what this year’s surprise gift will be.
Have you thought about the annual Jack Russell/Corgi Races coming up on January 19th, also at the Cody Auditorium? You can get your advance purchase tickets at the PCAS Craft Fair table for $10 each, or $30 for a family. This year there will be a raffle with three prizes only for those who purchase their tickets in advance: First prize is $500, and second and third prizes are $300 and $200 respectively.
So come on out and enjoy these fun events, and while you’re finding that perfect treat or gift at the Craft Fair, or watching the little Corgis and Jack Russells speed around the race track at the annual Jack Russell/Corgi Races, remember that you are helping all the homeless cats and dogs that find their way to the Park County Animal Shelter, and from there are matched up with their new owners to go live in their forever homes. The dogs and cats that come to the shelter need so many services to prepare them for their new homes, from vaccines and spaying or neutering, to specialized veterinarian care for injuries or illnesses, and the funds for these expenses are provided by the generosity of all the friends of Park County Animal Shelter. If you can’t make it to the Craft Fair or the JR/Corgi Races, but still want to help, go to the Donate Online page of this website and choose either a one-time or recurring monthly gift to PCAS. It will make a difference in the life of a homeless cat or dog.
If you would like to volunteer to help at the November 18th PCAS Craft Fair table, or give PCAS a hand with one of the volunteer jobs at the Jack Russell/Corgi Races, give Mary Whitmore a call at 307-578-8902, or send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you at the Craft Fair. Be sure to tell us you read about it on the PCAS website!
