A local no-kill animal shelter is hosting a staple fundraiser this weekend to help people afford feeding their fluffy felines. Bingo’s Foundation in Lower Bucks is Bowling for Homeless Cats this Saturday, Feb. 16.
The event has grown in each installment over the past four years. In 2018, roughly 65 people turned out “for the love of cats.”
“It has its own fan base,” Bingo’s Vice President Dave Fiedler said. “Bowling appeals to some people and not to others. We’re looking for people interested in participating.”
The cost of admission is $35 per person, which gets three hours of bowling, food and drinks, and prizes.
All proceeds will go towards the Emmett Food Fund, which purchases cat food for caregivers who support feral cats.
With bowling almost a done deal, Bingo’s is preparing for its biggest event of the year.
The shelter will host its Charity Auction on April 7 at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #5. Located at 11630 Caroline Road in NE Philly, doors will open at 1:30 p.m.
The cost per person is $40 before March 20 and admission includes 20 raffles, a buffet luncheon and dessert, and unlimited soft drinks and beer. People interested in attending should print out and follow the instructions on the promotional flyer available here.
People looking for more information or to adopt can reach Bingo’s Foundation at 215-781-0378 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
