Flatbread Benefit for Black Cat Rescue!

On November 19, 2013, Flatbread Company in Somerville, Massachusetts hosted a huge successful benefit for Black Cat Rescue!

From 5 p.m. to close, $1.75 from each small pizza ordered and $3.50 from each large pizza ordered was donated to Black Cat Rescue. In addition, Black Cat Rescue set up a table with BCR merchandise and information. We also sold raffle tickets for several amazing prizes  donated from generous local businesses and individuals.

We set up a table at the entrance to Flatbread with merchandise, Black Cat Rescue brochures, cat adoption cards, and some of our raffle prizes on display! From here we swapped stories of our favorite black cats, sold raffle tickets, answered questions and had a great time!

It was a huge success! We raised approximately $1700 dollars for our cats! We were so pleased to see the community come out to support Black Cat Rescue. Meeting our supporters and chatting about black cats was so much fun, and the pizza was delicious! The raffle was also hugely successful– we have drawn the winners and contacted them. Prizes were generously donated by:
