"Spay-ghetti Dinner and Silent Auction" is a major fundraiser sponsored by All Animals Matter, In.c   Their 9th annual benefit is being held on Saturday, April 6 from 4:30 to 7:00 pm.  The venue is the Norwich VFW at 61 East Main Street, Norwich.

"The silent auction gets bigger and better every year," said Diane Troxell, founder of All Animals Matter.  "We hope people from all over the area will come and enjoy our dinner and auction.  We have auction baskets from a wide variety of businesses in the Tri-County area, including many from the Oneonta area, such as Indelible Ink, Liquor Depot, Crystal Palace and others.  And of course the gift cards from businesses are always popular."

This year's event will also feature a "live appearance" by some adorable (and very adoptable) dogs and cats from the Delaware Valley Humane Society of Sidney.  "We will bring some of our best that day," Erin Insinga, director of the DVHS, said.  "We hope people will come out and give these furry friends their forever homes."  

The meal will be a complete spaghetti dinner, with spaghetti, salad and homemade meatballs.  Take outs will be available, and gluten free dinners will be available this year also.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a donation of pet food for the Pet Food bank.Proceeds from this special day will benefit the Krista L. Bartle "4 Paws Friends Club."

This promises to be a big day for this wonderful group and all are invited!
