Message from our President – Fun, Fundraisers & Festivities!

July 22, 2017

Dear friends,

We’ve been busy at Phinney’s Friends, planning lots of events and writing grants. Our hope is to increase our donation base and be able to reopen all our programs really soon!

One of the events we are planning is Phinney’s Ride. A small group of bike riders traverses 75 miles from Stow MA to Fitzwilliam NH on September 9, 2017. They overnight at a cabin owned by the leading biker and have a fun, quiet night chatting until it’s time to go to sleep. The next day they go 75 miles back to Stow — all this to raise funds for Phinney’s. Each biker signs up to raise at least $500 for us.

Believe it or not, despite the hot weather, we are also thinking Holiday Festival. Yes, we are making lots of plans to expand and spruce up our Holiday event on November 12, 2017, at the Pierce House in Lincoln MA, so it will be even more fun and successful.

If you’d like to help us by making candles, kitchen towels, kitty toys or blankets — anything you’d like to contribute to our cause, please jump in!

As you can see, we are keeping busy! But if you’d like to chat with us, have fun and score a bargain in the process, come meet us at our tent at Woofstock in Hudson, on September 23, 2017. We’ll keep our tradition and sell doggie outfits for $5 and dog toys for $2. All brand new products donated by very generous businesses who appreciate our mission to help low-income people and their pets stay together.

Cool, huh? See you then!


Daniela Caride, President of the Board
