"The Santa Paws Festival is a holiday tradition at our cat shelter in Lakewood, and the time when our dedicated volunteers show off their amazing baking skills and, this year, wreath making talents, to help raise funds for our cat residents."
Lakewood, Colorado (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
The Cat Care Society (CCS), 5787 W. 6th Avenue, will hold its annual "Santa Paws Festival," Friday, November 30, and Saturday, December 1. The announcement is made by Jane Dorsey, Cat Care Society Volunteer Coordinator, who says "The Santa Paws Festival is a holiday tradition at our cat shelter in Lakewood, and the time when our dedicated volunteers show off their amazing baking skills and, this year, wreath making talents, to help raise funds for our cat residents and community outreach programs"
During Santa Paws Festival 2012, Cat Care Society donors and supporters can shop the wreath sale and Meow Mart for cat gifts, including the 'must have' Catnip Banana, before venturing downstairs to The Cat Clinic waiting area, which is transformed into a veritable Sweet Shop for the Festival. "Quite simply," Dorsey explains, "It’s the best bake sale in the history of the world—really! Plus, we'll serve refreshments, including Santa Paw's famous Cathouse Champagne Punch."
Favorites at the Santa Paws Festival Bake Sale include homemade candies, cookies, bar cookies, pies, jams, jellies, home canned items (such as pickles), boxed cupcakes, Bundt cakes, spiced nuts, and FUDGE—all kinds of fudge. "Our Santa Paws' volunteer bakers are known for their creative and beautiful packaging, and many shoppers use purchases as hostess gifts at holiday parties and potlucks," Dorsey said.
Please note: the Santa Paws Festival Bake Sale is open Noon to 5 on Friday (11/30) and 9 to 1:30 on Saturday (12/1) in The Cat Clinic waiting area. Regular shelter hours are Noon to 5:30 on Friday and 11 to 4:30 on Saturday for adoptions and shopping at Meow Mart.
