Talk on fundraising for pets with cancer at Westport Rotary
The Westport Rotary Club will host two members of a nonprofit agency that raises money to treat pets with cancer at its weekly meeting at noon Tuesday, Oct. 11, in Bertucci's restaurant, 833 Post Road East.
Michelle Margo, executive director of the Riedel & Cody Fund, and Heather Witt, a dog trainer and a member of the fund's advisory board, will talk about "Providing and Financing Care for Pets With Cancer." They will also discuss the fund's goals to raise money for cancer treatments, which are rarely covered by insurance, and how the fund has become a model for nonprofits in the use of social media.
The public is welcome. There is a $20 fee, which includes lunch. For information, call 203-227-3090 or visit www.rotary.org.
