LAA raises $5,000 at 7th Spay-ghetti and No Balls

After a COVID-19 hiatus, Lincoln Animal Ambassadors (LAA) was once again able to hold its Spay-ghetti and No Balls fundraiser this fall. About 100 guests were welcomed to the Unitarian Church on the evening of October 8 and approximately $5,000 was raised!

For $25, attendees received a dinner that included salad, spaghetti, and breadsticks. Meatballs were available for an extra charge. Dinners were served buffet style. The all-volunteer wait staff kept everyone’s water and tea glasses topped up; wine and beer were available for purchase.

The featured organization at the event was the Capital Humane Society (CHS). New CHS Executive Director Matt Madcharo spoke about the many changes that have occurred to increase his dog and cat placements. Madcharo also explained the new Pawsitive Impact project, which provides an opportunity for pet owners to provide their pets with preventive veterinary care when they face financial constraints.

“We wanted Matt Madcharo to speak because he is the new leader of the Capital Humane Society,” LAA President Mary Douglas said. “LAA has already had many opportunities to collaborate with CHS and has several other projects underway for the future. »

The evening ended with the LAA Dessert Auction, led by auctioneer Tom Bassett, who volunteered his time. Twenty-eight tasty treats were up for auction, with the highest bid being $220.

A big shout out to everyone who supported LAA by coming out to Spay-ghetti and No Balls. A special thank you to the businesses who donated food and beverages, the local bakers who donated desserts, the 20 table sponsors, the Nelson family and the Gilchrist family who prepared and served the food, and all the volunteers who ensured the smooth running of the event.

“I love this event because it allows the community to join us in our mission,” said Douglas.

Lincoln Animal Ambassadors addresses the root causes of animal homelessness in the Lancaster County area by helping pets and their loved ones through a low-cost, voucher-based neutering program and food bank pet care based on income. LAA is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, supported entirely by donations and fundraising.
