This week we had a wonderfully successful fundraiser at The Mitten Brewing Company and we’d like to thank them, as well as all of you who attended, for such a great event!
Here is a great interview with part-owners Shannon and Chris Andrus about The Mitten’s commitment to helping local charities.

For the whole month of July, the folks at this fantastic local pizza and beer joint have donated a portion of their proceeds to CTC, and have been collecting donations from customers. They asked for $1 to post a little ‘therapy balls’ on their donations wall, and for a $5 donation, they were giving out sets of notecards made by our students in the pet shop coloring contest we held this spring.

This last Monday was the real fundraising event, where 50% of all food sales from lunch and dinner were donated, and we held a 50/50 raffle along with a Pick-a-Prize that added even more fun ways to give. It was a great time and so many wonderful folks joined us to enjoy delicious pizza!
