The Bent Tree Foundation held its fifth fundraising event at Fatz Café on Saturday morning, March 28, 2015. Almost 140 attendees enjoyed the breakfast that Fatz so generously provides for various charitable and humanitarian purposes. This fundraiser was held to raise money for the Foundation’s Stray Animal Care Fund as well as other Foundation projects. With the help of many wonderful volunteers, who served as waiters, servers and dishwashers, we were able to provide our attendees with a fine meal plus the enjoyment of being served by their neighbors.
In addition to a delicious breakfast, the Foundation sold raffle tickets for the opportunity to win eight great prizes. The results were as follows: Kindle HDX7, won by Sara Baumann; Extra Rare Crown Royal whiskey, won by Sue Weatherly; Keurig coffeemaker, won by Judy Bailey; magnum of Moet & Chandon champagne, won by Mike King; bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne, won by Glenn Smith; gift basket of Bodacious cheese products, won by Phyllis Conley; $25 Madeline’s gift certificate, won by Gene Berry; $25 Last Catch gift certificate, won by Jane Tenedini. Congratulations to all the lucky winners!
Once again “Flapjacks for the Foundation” was a wonderful success. We thank all of you for your donations, your attendance and your volunteerism. Without your support, the Foundation would have great difficulty in taking care of the stray animals that so frequently seem to find their way into Bent Tree.
We look forward to holding our sixth Fatz breakfast next fall. We ask each of you to support the business sponsors who have provided the Foundation with assistance over the last few years, particularly those listed above.
