But the reality is, it isn’t quite enough, so the SPCA holds fundraisers throughout the year to meet costs.
Saturday’s fundraiser begins at 4:30 p.m. at the American Legion with a silent auction, which runs the entire evening.
About 35 auction items, donated by various local businesses, will be up for grabs to the highest bidders.
The barbecue—chicken, corn on the cob, baked potato and roll—begins at 5 p.m., and is also available for take-out.
Jay Heald of Heald Funeral Home in Plattsburgh donates all the chicken, and the American Legion does all the cooking.
The Compass Rose Band will perform the entire evening, and the entire event ends at 7 p.m.
Tickets cost $10 and can be purchased at the Peru Library, Rescued Treasures on Clinton Street in Plattsburgh, online at elmorespca.org and at the door.
A silent auction will also be held from 4:30–7 p.mand the dinner will take place from 5–7 p.m. The band will play throughout both.
