'Pints for Paws' a success
On Tuesday, Nov. 13, Trackside Station Restaurant and Loyal Biscuit Co. teamed together to host a fundraiser, “Pints for Paws” to benefit the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County. It was the fourth time the businesses partnered for the cause.
Once again, the evening exceeded our expectations. In just three short hours on a Tuesday night, almost 200 people came through the doors, enjoyed dinner, purchased raffle tickets, bid on auction items and, like the name says, enjoyed nearly 200 pints of beer to benefit the shelter. The evening raised $1,600 for the shelter and we filled a trailer with items on the Humane Society’s wish list with items such as bleach, paper towels, cat and dog food, toys and more!
In total, since beginning the fundraiser for the shelter in April 2011, Trackside and Loyal Biscuit have raised $5,589 to help the area’s animals.
We would like to thank the following for helping us to have an amazingly successful night: Paddy Mills, Fletcher Hall, Jen Chapman, Peter Gray of Federal Distributors & Shipyard Brewing Co., Courier Publications, Maine Eastern Railroad, Lupine Collars & Leads, Clear Conscience Pet, Friendship Trap Co., Owls Head Transportation Museum, Blue Buffalo, J.
