2nd Annual Black Cat Ball Charity Raffle


This is a great cause and great fun. The 2nd Annual Black Cat Ball will be held this Friday Night at the Om Bar. Part of this is the Charity Raffle:

The OM Bar in association with No Pet Left Behind and local veterinary hospitals Beachwood Animal Hospital, Glencoe Veterinary Hospital and Val-U-Vet; is helping to raise money for the NSB Beachside Feral Cat TNR Fund. (Trap-Neuter-Return or TNR is the humane approach to feral cat control and the only proven method to reduce feral cat overpopulation. We work with local residents and assist in safely trapping and fixing feral cats, as well as providing for their basic medical needs (including vaccinations) and returning them to the same location where they were trapped.
Since feral cats are wild and generally not able to be socialized, these animals are not adoptable and will be euthanized if taken to a shelter. These cats do not have to be put to death. Stopping the cat’s breeding cycle is the humane and effective way to manage a feral population.

There are TWO WAYS TO HELP

1) Black Cat Ball Charity Raffle: Make a donation of $5 per ticket for a raffle to win a NEW Scooter from Solcat Scooters. Drawing held at Midnight on October 31 at the OM Bar, 392 Flagler Avenue, New Smyrna Beach. Winner need not be present to win.

2) Save a Cat Program: Make a donation of $70 and save 1 cat . Your donation provides for the spay/neuter, FIV/Feline Leukemia testing, vaccination, tagging of one cat, start to finish. As a thank you for your gift of $70 you will receive 1 raffle ticket AND your choice of a souvenir T-shirt or a gift basket donated by Frontline/Heartgard. 100% of the raffle proceeds go to the fund. The money does not go to a national charity but stays Beachside. Last year we raised enough money to TNR 25 cats Beachside. This year our goal is to double that number.

You can stop by the OM Bar on Flagler Ave anytime this week to purchase a raffle ticket or make a donation!

Thank you so much for spreading the word about the raffle. Last year we raised enough money to care for 25 cats. Our goal this year is to double that. 100% of the proceeds for the raffle go to the fund and 100% of the money is spent locally in NSB Beachside! Thanks again.
