Thank you for successful fundraiser
On behalf of all of us at Carson Tahoe SPCA, we would like to thank everyone that participated in our inaugural Spay-ghetti and No Balls dinner event at the Governor’s Mansion held on Aug. 22.
It was wonderful to meet those who support the work of our organization, as we enjoyed the food so generously donated by Cafe at Adele’s.
Without the support of the community we could not be successful in our efforts to spay and neuter the homeless animals of our community.
This event was a huge success because of all the generous donations of our local businesses, as well as the support of the Carson City Chamber of Commerce and people like you. A special thanks to Charlie Abowd and Linda Marrone for their support in making our first event a reality.
