CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) – The Corning community and their pets embraced the Halloween theme in the form of a fundraiser. Corning residents brought their fur babies together in style to celebrate the Howl-O-Ween happy hour. The event was sponsored by Corning Credit Union and Iron Flamingo Brewery.
The Halloween-themed pet celebration is not just about fundraising for the Humane Society but also bringing awareness to how people can assist the Chemung County SPCA as they strive to help local animals.
“Every $1 of every beer bought goes straight to the Chemung County SPCA. We’ve got some raffles going with Corning Credit Union, we’ve got 50/50 raffles,” said Jaime Wolf, Media Relations Coordinator for Chemung County SPCA
Now that the event has garnered support amongst the local community, the plan is to make it an annual fundraiser.
“We would love to make this an annual event for sure, for sure, the more support we can get, the more people to come out, drink some beers, save some money and, save some animals,” said Ben Mauer, Head brewer at Iron Flamingo Brewery
Although there were no adoptable animals on site for this event, the Chemung County Humane Society and SPCA still could use your help with providing a home for the animals as the winter months arrive.
