A fundraising dinner is being held to help with the upkeep of about 350 cats currently being cared for by the Carvoeiro Cat Charity.
It is hoped the evening on Sunday, March 12 at Restaurante A Tasquinha, Monte Carvoeiro, will attract about 100 diners of various nationalities.
“In addition to contributing to the cost of feeding, all money raised will go to paying vet bills and building a new shelter within the refuge that will give a better life to our cats and make cleaning easier for our volunteers,” says Corinna Janiec, president of the CCC.
The dinner will be an informal evening starting at 8pm and feature live music by the popular performer Adelino.
A similar event two years ago attracted Portuguese, English, German, Dutch and French members of the community.
Cost is €25 per person and will cover either a chicken or vegetarian three-course menu, a drink and coffee. Half of this price will help feed the 350 cats while permanent adoption homes are sought for them.
