Catoberfest benefits no-kill shelter
Mid-Hudson Animal Aid, a free-range cat sanctuary founded in 1979, will hold its fifth annual Catoberfest benefit from 3 to 6 p.m. at The Hop in Beacon on Sunday, Sept. 25. The free event features live music from four bands, including Daria Grace and the PreWar Ponies, and Catstein. A buffet will include Sauerbraten (a German pot roast), bratwurst and mushroom strudel.
Tickets for the buffet are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. The 2015 Catoberfest raised more than $15,000 to support the 150 feline residents of MHAA, most of whom are available for fostering or adoption.
The event also includes a raffle, with a 2016 Kona Dew Plus Bike from People’s Bicycles as the grand prize. Raffle tickets are $10 each or three for $25. The Hop is located at 554 Main St. For more information, visit midhudsonanimalaid.org.
