upcoming fundraisers for the Stratford Cat Project

The Stratford Cat Project is holding a "Dine for the Cause" at Chicago Uno's Grill in Milford on April 24.  If you bring a special coupon (below), a percentage of your bill will go to the Stratford Cat Project.  Also, it's time for our HUGE semi-annual tag sale, which will be held on May 10.  See below for details on both.

"Dear Friends and Supporters:   Spring is finally here and so is kitten season.  As you can imagine, we are getting inundated with pleas for help for so many situations, and our vet/food bills for our current kitties, as well as those we will be taking in, are rapidly mounting.    SCP  is excited to announce two upcoming fundraisers that will hopefully allow us to help as many of our fur friends as possible:

Please join us on April 24 from noon until closing at Chicago Uno's Grill, 1061 Boston Post Road, Milford, for a fundraiser to support Riley's Second Chance Fund, a special fund to support kitties with extraordinary medical needs.  Please have lunch, dinner, bar or takeout, and a portion of your check will be donated to SCP.  A coupon must be presented to your server. Coupons were mailed with the newsletter (hard copy and e-mail,) are posted on Facebook, and are attached here.  This year we are primarily raising funds for Linus, a beautiful kitty who was found as a stray in Bridgeport.  Sadly, Linus suffered some kind of trauma to his eye.  Poor Linus cannot close his eye due to the buildup of scar tissue and a missing portion of his eyelid.  Sweet Linus's condition is painful, and it can also cause chronic corneal irritation and ulceration. Linus's surgery is scheduled for 4/24, and even with discounted vet services, we estimate his vet bills to be around $1,500.   Please help us help Linus!!!  Spread the word and coupons!!!  We will also gratefully accept donations of canned Friskies or Fancy Feast food at this event. 

Our May fundraiser is our annual Spring Tag Sale, scheduled for May 10 at 1473 Nichols Avenue in Stratford (rain date 5/31.)  Time to clean out those closets!!!  We really need items to sell!     We will gratefully accept donations of new or nearly new items (household, kitchen, pocketbooks, accessories, garden, home decor, "gifty" items) for the sale.  Due to storage and other issues, we can only accept fiction books, smaller furniture items, brand new clothes, etc.  We will be setting up and having a preview sale on Friday, May 9, with the sale on Saturday, May 10 from 9-4. Donations may be dropped off after April 15 at 85 Champion Terrace or on the day before the sale (May 9)  at the tag sale site.    Please come out and see us and find your special treasure. 

As always, SCP thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.  We simply could not do what we do without you."
