Nugget hosts benefit for cat sanctuary

Anita Kornoff

No Valentine’s date? No problem.

Enjoy a fun night out on Feb. 16, at the Carson Nugget to raise funds to keep Catmandu purring along. Catmandu takes a different approach to caring for homeless cats and kittens in transition. Instead of shutting them in individual steel cages, they provide a cage-free group-home environment that better suits their needs. Each year, hundreds of homeless and at-risk cats and kittens pass through the doors of Catmandu seeking help and sanctuary. Most find new “fur-ever” homes; a few become permanent residents. Doors open at 5 p.m., with dinner at 6 p.m., followed by a raffle, auctions, and live music and dancing with “One Way Street.” There will be a cash bar, dinner (with vegetarian option), raffle, live music and dancing, plus, games, prizes, and surprises. Tickets are $50 in advance, $65 at the door. See to order.
