Humane Society hosts St. Patrick’s Day dinner

Friday, March 13, 2015 — Those looking to spend St. Patrick’s Day supporting a local cause and eating a great dinner can attend the Lassen Humane Society’s seventh annual corned beef and cabbage dinner.

From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 17 at the Lassen Senior Center on Sunkist Drive, the Lassen Humane Society is hosting its annual fundraiser, according to secretary Chris Geffre.

Supporters can either sit down or take their corned beef and cabbage dinner to go.

“We always have really good food,” said Geffre.

She said the organization hopes to raise as much as it can from the fundraiser. She said in previous years the event has raised as much as $2,000.

Annually, she said Lassen Humane Society brings in about $20,000 through fundraisers.

Additionally, the organization will start accepting donations for their annual yard sale March 19.

They are looking for donations of gently used items, except electronics and adult’s clothing.

Geffre said drop-off locations and pick-up services will be announced later.

Proceeds from the upcoming fundraisers will benefit the humane society’s spay and neuter program.

According to the organization’s website, the Lassen Humane Society has returned about $600,000 to Lassen County residents since 2004 by reimbursing for spaying and neutering.
