"Bag Ladies Lunch" and Feral Friends of The Sandhills

If you've known me for any length of time at all, it's probably apparent that I absolutely love animals. We live with a Chocolate Lab named Coco, a Beagle named Penny, and two indoor cats named Gracie and Cody. Our *extended family* also includes an array of outdoor kitties that we've grown to know and love. Officially, these cats are known as a "Feral Colony"; but to us they're Cally, Greybe, Lewis, Clark, Cuddles, Spot Dot, Patches, and Junior.

Tomorrow morning I'll be taking seven of them to our local Spay and Neuter Clinic for surgery. Their surgeries are possible thanks to the gracious support of three lovely ladies and their organization, Feral Friends of The Sandhills. I am most grateful.

If you're in the area, and you'd like to support this wonderful organization, they'll be hosting "The Second Annual Bag Ladies Lunch" from 11:30 - 1:30 on Friday October 16th at Ironwood Cafe. There'll be delicious edibles, a silent auction of gently used handbags, plus new handbags donated by local boutiques. Tickets are just $30, and the purchaser of each ticket will be entered into a drawing to win a designer handbag.

Available space is limited, and reservations are required. Tickets are available at The Faded Rose in Pinehurst or by calling 910-215-0505.

If you don't live in the area, and you'd still like to support this worthy cause, please call 910-295-0505.
