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.
For more information on Faithful Friends, call 704-633-1722 or log onto its Web site at www.faithfulfriendsnc.org. Anyone interested in making a contribution toward the animal sanctuary, donating building supplies or helping with the construction can contact Mary Ann Pool, who chairs the Building Committee, at clar451@live.com or President Anne Ingram at 704-433-8169.
