Nelson SPCA serves up burgers, beer and song on Friday
This Friday, the Nelson branch of the BC SPCA will be holding its second annual Burger and Beer Karaoke fundraiser at Finley’s Irish Bar and Grill.
For only $15, attendees will be able to enjoy a beer and a local cruelty-free premium burger while also hearing some of the best singers in Nelson belt out favorites.
“I’m very gratified by some of the amazing singers and performers we have coming out — even if we only raise a few bucks, it will be a lot of fun,” says Rob Andrew, Nelson branch manager. “As with all of our events, we have attempted to source cruelty- free meat and this is going to be a better buy than your average burger and beer event.”
A veggie burger will also be served and non-alcoholic options are available in place of beer.
The fundraiser is directed at emergency and costly medical procedures.
“We have a very limited medical budget,” says Andrew. “Last year as a result of this event and some amazing local generosity, an amazing dog named Ariel was able to get a costly but life-saving amputation of one of her legs.”
Ariel is still going as strong as ever, but there are always more animals that need help.
The event is from 6 to 9 p.m. at Finley’s. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Nelson SPCA, Selkirk Vet, and Nelson Animal Hospital or at the door.
The Nelson SPCA would like to gratefully acknowledge karaoke MC extraordinaire Joe Ringrose, Finley’s for holding the event, and Kootenay Meadows Farm in Creston and the Kootenay Co-op for providing a discount on the cruelty-free beef.
