For the friends of the Independent Cat Society, a no-kill cat shelter
And the Winner is...
Spring 2016 #149
That’s right, this year’s Sweetheart winner was none other than Cleo! The beautiful little 14 year-old dynamo was a big hit at our Sweetheart Day Festival on February 27, capturing many hearts as she strutted her stuff for her admirers. In fact, all of our cats were big winners during Sweetheart season this year, as ICS was able to earn almost $9000 toward food, litter, and medical care! So while Cleo knows she’s special, she also knows she has you to thank for all of your support! We would also like to thank our many team leaders who took it upon themselves to bake, craft, run events, and sell items for their candidate. Without them, this event would not be possible, and this year they really pulled out all the stops! Thinking about being a team leader or volunteering for fundraising events? We can always use help and fresh ideas! Visit us at our newly redesigned website, http://www.catsociety.org, to learn more and complete an online volunteer application.
Upcoming Events - New Schedules! This year, ICS is shaking things up and bringing some new flair to old favorite events, as well as introducing some new ones. We hope that you will help us spread the word, join in, and bring your friends and family to come out and support the kitties! As always, don’t forget to check in at our website (catsociety. org) or on our new and improved Facebook page (facebook.com/ INCatSociety) for the latest news. You’ll also be able to read about us in local newspapers and even hear about us on the radio from time to time throughout the year!
