DeAnna’s Restaurant on North Franklin Street in Lambertville is hosting “Wines for Felines,” a fundraiser to benefit the “Fabulous Felines” Cat Adoption Center in West Amwell, located inside the Animal Alliance Planned Pethood clinic on Route 179 North. The event will be held on Thursday, July 26, from 6 – 9 p.m.
The “Fabulous Felines” Cat Adoption Center is operated jointly by Lambertville Animal Welfare and Animal Alliance. Lambertivlle Animal Welfare is a coalition of local rescue groups, the City of Lambertville, and Animal Control for Lambertville and surrounding areas. Lambertville Animal Welfare’s mission is to ensure all stray animals in the Greater Lambertville area are either reunited with their owners or put up for adoption, reversing a decades long trend where stray animals were impounded and often euthanized for lack of an adoption venue.
DeAnna’s is donating their trademark homemade Italian food, while wine distributors Frederick Wildman and Sons and Allied Beverges are donating the wine for the event. Appetizers and wine will be served in DeAnna’s outdoor garden.
DeAnna’s owner Dianna Paterra says, “We are very happy to help these two local animal charities, who are both doing good work right here in Lambertville. We all love dogs and cats here at DeAnna’s and all of us have pets we adore so we are glad to lend a hand to help promote lifesaving programs for cats.”
“We are grateful for the support and friendship of the animal lovers at DeAnna’s,” says Lori Stagnitto, President of Lambertville Animal Welfare. The New Hope Jazz Collective is donating their time as well, and will perform throughout the event. WeLovePhotobooths.com of Lambertville is donating a photo booth where attendees can pop in for a series of photos for a $10 donation. Local designer Kevin Griffin designed the stylish invitations and has chosen an antique ceramic cat he found at a local antique store as the motif for the event. This green and gold cat will be raffled off that evening.
Those interested in attending can call DeAnna’s at 609-397-8957 to reserve a spot.
