(Marion, IA) Area residents are invited to join the fun for an evening of delicious “comfort food” and celebrity appearances as local animal welfare organization Iowa Humane Alliance presents their “Hot Soup-Cold Noses Benefit Supper” at the Marion American Legion, 625 31st Street, Marion, IA, on Friday, February 8th from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM. Admission for the all-you-can-eat affair is $8.00 for adults, with kids under five eating for free. Tickets will be available at the door.
The menu of home-style offerings includes a body-and-soul- warming assortment of chicken noodle soup with home-made noodles, beef-and-bean chili and vegan chili, veggie barley soup and a selection of beverages, as well as cornbread muffins, cupcakes and ice cream.
Proceeds from the evening will go toward IHA’s on-going mission to reduce companion animal overpopulation and animal suffering in Iowa, including funding for the organization’s new Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic. Located at 6540 6th Street S.W in Cedar Rapids, the clinic will hold its gala Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting ceremony at 12:00 noon, Saturday, February 16th, followed by an Open House with tours of the facility for the public from 1 PM to 5 PM.
When fully functioning, the IHA Regional Spay/Neuter Clinic will serve 41 Eastern Iowa counties in a 100 mile radius of Cedar Rapids/Iowa City and will provide low-cost, high-quality, high-volume spay/neuter procedures for over 8,000 animals a year. This high volume of procedures will prevent the births of literally tens of thousands of unwanted companion animals a year; animals that would otherwise contribute to the costly overcrowding in Eastern Iowa shelters and rescues struggling to keep up with the inflow of animals to their facilities.
