Meals and deals
By Lynn Weisberg
The SPA has been pleased to have various restaurants in town “partner” with us. This means that on a day of their choice, they agree to give us a percentage of their profits. In exchange, we encourage as many people as possible to patronize the restaurant on that day. Everyone wins; the restaurant has customers, the dogs and cats at the SPA get some money to use toward their meals, and the folks dining at the partner restaurant get a great meal and the satisfaction of helping the animals at the same time.
The Longhorn Smokehouse Bar & Grill was our first partner, and we want to take the opportunity to thank Keith and his staff. He generously gave us a percentage of his profits for the whole day! If you like barbecue, brisket, burgers, ribs, steak or chicken, head to the Longhorn for a great meal and a good time.
On August 18, Shanti San Miguel is our partner! This beautiful retreat just a few miles outside of SMA will be offering a special menu that day. For 200 pesos, have a delicious comida, spend the day relaxing at the pool, and browse the jewelry sale, which will be happening at the same time. If you want pure bliss, enjoy a massage and mani-pedi. One of our SPA volunteers will provide free transportation with advance reservations. If you need a ride, email Mary at email@example.com.
Check our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/spasanmiguel) and fundraising news on our website (www.spasanmiguel.org) for restaurants that agree to partner with us in future months. We will also post information on various Yahoo SMA lists.
While you’re saving the date and marking your calendar for the Shanti event, make an entry for August 31, too. On that day, the SPA is having a garage (patio) sale, at Stirling Dickinson 10, from 9am to 1pm. A variety of lovely things will be available for your browsing and purchasing pleasure, so plan on bargain hunting before brunch!
Colette and Audrey are just two of our wonderful animals who will benefit from your support of our fundraisers. See all our available animals on our website and in our Facebook albums – bios and videos too. Please consider volunteering! Walk dogs. Play with puppies and kitties. Give cats some love. Lots of ways to help! Visit the SPA, Monday-Saturday, 11am-2pm, Los Pinos 7, phone 152-6124 to find out more!
