More than 60 people attend Faithful Friends fundraiser
Jean McCoy and Rick Travis hosted a “Coffee, Cookies and Cuttings” fundraiser for Faithful Friends Animal Sanctuary at their Salisbury home on July 25.
There was a $10 minimum donation for a one-gallon bucket of cuttings and $25 for a five-gallon bucket.
More than 60 people attended to enjoy coffee, cookies and to take home flowers from the 3 acres of lush gardens. Lorene Coates was an honored guest.
The group raised $1,615, which will go toward the construction of Faithful Friends’ no-kill animal santuary planned for Grace Church Road in Rowan County.
The nonprofit group has raised $358,000 so far for the 5,400-square-foot no-kill animal sanctuary, which is estimated to cost between $400,000 and $500,000.
