Flyer for May 17 Harleys For Charley
FFACS

So, you love your motorcycle, and you love cats. Who doesn’t? How do you employ the former to help the latter? One way is a charity ride this Saturday (Caturday?), May 17th, known as “Harleys for Charley”, Don’t worry, all motorcycle makes are welcome. Yes, even Triumph riders. The ride will benefit Friends Forever, A Cat Sanctuary (FFACS) http://www.ffacs.org , located at 359 Nevada Street, Auburn, CA. The sign up and congregation takes place at the main gate of the El Dorado County Fairgrounds in Placerville, beginning at 8:30 am. The group departure is scheduled for 9:00-ish, but you know how these group rides go, so be flexible. Destination is Auburn Recreational Park, (123 Recreation Drive, Auburn) where a BBQ lunch and raffle awaits riders and non-riding participants.

FFACS Executive Director, Shirley Hartford, heads a dedicated team of 20-25 regular volunteers, plus 100-130 others who intermittently help runn the organization. FFACS is a No-Kill Adoption facility that has placed 1,550 cats during its six years in operation. They generally have 70-75 cats in house available for adoption at any given time, but have had as many as 110. When circumstances require, they also participate in T-N-R, Trap-Neuter-Release.

FFACS functions entirely with private donations and fund raisers, receiving no funds from the city, county or state. That’s where you come in, this Saturday. Registration is $25, but includes your BBQ lunch, catered by Max’s Grill. This is FFACS’s first-ever charity ride, so come on out and help make it a purrfect inaugural event.

Until next time, stay tuned and upright,

Jack
