K9 News

A Night at the Races was  held at the Starlights Cabaret Bar in Lower Coral Mar Square, Costa Del Silencio, last night. Though only a couple of dozen punters attended, those that did were very generous and an enjoyable night was had by all. The night had been arranged by Chrissy & Mark from the Great British Chippy, with assistance from Gareth at Starlights Bar and many others (you know who you are, thankyou).
There was the usual tombola, book stall, and several raffle prizes kindly donated by K9 supporters and friends. Winning horse owners also received great prizes and there were many happy faces leaving the event in the early hours of this morning, laden with all sorts of goodies. Smirnoff shares must have peaked this last couple of days!

The stew and crusty bread supper was in keeping with Chrissy’s usual high standard
€600 was raised which will go some way in paying the vets bills and pet food of the 80 plus dogs and 20 cats at the kennels. The K9 officers and committee appreciate the hard work that goes into fundraising and thank once again so many people who made the evening a success, both socially and financially.

The next planned event is at the same venue on Tuesday 11th May when a Gala Charity Evening of Entertainment is being held.

Mike Edwards will compere and Mandy will do her usual excellent job in taking care of the sound system. Starring Cy Benson, Rosemary Eden, Christine Kaye, Charlie Hodge as Neal Diamond, John Ashford as Buddy Holly and Jesse Garon as himself, it promises to be another excellent night.
It all gets underway at 8pm and the €5 entrance fee also includes supper provided by Gareth. There will be the usual tombola, book stall, auction and raffle, with many excellent prizes once again. There will also be K9 t shirts and key rings for sale.
Guests are invited to bring along a tin of dog or cat food, biscuits or treats for the 4 legged guys back at the kennels.

It is possible to reserve a table by contacting Gloria on 639 028 034 or by calling in at the Starlights Cabaret Bar.
