The Groton Animal Foundation Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which raises funds to subsidize the general needs of the Town of Groton Animal Control Facility and the medical needs of its residing animals. In addition, the Groton Animal Foundation advocates for the animals by educating the public and funding ancillary programs.
Once again, our generous local community of animal lovers has joined together to support the work of the Groton Animal Foundation. Our 6th annual Cause For Paws wine and beer tasting fundraiser was held on a gorgeous September evening at Shennecossett Yacht Club.
We’d like to thank CJ Patel of The Grapevine for coordinating a dozen vendors who showcased more than fifty wines and a great assortment of beers. We’d also like to thank Par 4 Restaurant for supplying the tastiest spread of delicious food for guests. The dancers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Old Saybrook put on an amazing demonstration, and really got the joint hopping. This would not have been possible without our DJ, John, from Atlantic Coast Entertainment. We’d also like thank all of the businesses who placed ads in our program, as we mentioned here. Glen Allvord of NEID printing was instrumental in pulling the booklet together.
This year’s raffle was bigger and better than ever! We had so many local businesses and individuals donating items for the raffle, and the result was amazing. We thank all of the basket donors for their kindness, and their creativity in assembling these wonderful baskets.
Finally, we must thank all of you who purchased tickets, and came out to support us this year. We are so fortunate to have a generous and caring community who support our mission through ongoing donations, and by coming out to our fundraisers. We are so very grateful to all of you for your continued support!
