Saga Humane Society would like to give a big Thank You to Bella Italia for hosting our Cook Off Italian/Pasta March 26.There was an air of hungry eagerness as the Chef’s began to arrive with their pasta entries. It was a lively crowd that kept our raffle tickets sales busy. The new VIP tables for six sold quickly to Saga HS supporters Wolfgang Wind and Eisenberg family to enjoy. Thank you to everyone who attended to help support Operation SNIP, we consider you all Very Important People. It was a pleasant night for all that raised money for 25 SNIPs (spay/neuter) for low income residents.

After the votes were tallied the winner was Lasagna – Heather Smith. 2nd Place went to Tuscan Italian Soup with pesto toast- Nancy Nida from Fido’s.  3rd Place was Mama’s Classic Spaghetti & Meatballs – Rosa La Rosa.  The other fine dishes were: Macaroni & Cheese Balls with ranch dip and Chipotle – Luna Loca, Penne Pasta With Cheese Sauce – Carolina Mckay (sponsored by Michele Coldberg), Bacon Spaghetti – Bella Italia, Parmesan Chicken Pasta – Faride Lima. We are grateful to the Chef’s for their scrumptious entries, creativity and for their support.

We had some first-rate raffle prizes, Xtreme Geeks gift certificate, ABC Bar & Grill gift certificate, and a Black Orchid gift certificate. We value the charitable support from our local business community through their donations.

Such events would not be possible if not for the hard work of our volunteers. Thank you for your dedication; Rene Steinmetz, Iliana Paj, Heather Smith, Ingrid Lima, Judy Schreiner, Kathy Marin and Sandie Betz-Eisenberg.

Saga Humane Society would like to thank everyone for their continued support.
