September 17, 2020 would have been the 13th annual Eat for Pete’s Sake event, to raise funds for animals at Pope Memorial Humane Society. Traditionally, Pope Memorial Humane Society supporters and restaurant patrons dine out at local restaurants and restaurants then donate a portion of the day’s sales to PMHS, according to PMHS, in a news release.
“Pope Memorial Humane Society fully understands what a difficult time it is for the service industry right now, so this year, Pope Memorial Humane Society wants to encourage our community to Eat for Pete’s Sake, in support of the 2019 Eat for Pete’s Sake restaurants!” said PMHS.
This year Pope Memorial Humane Society is not asking any restaurant to donate to them; the 13th annual Eat for Pete’s Sake event will be “Pete” asking you the community to support local restaurants.
“PMHS is anxious to spread the word,” said the shelter. “2020 has been difficult for all local businesses and the shelter is looking forward to encouraging supporters to eat out in support of local restaurants that have supported PMHS in the past! Pope Memorial Humane Society fully appreciates that they would not be where they are without the past support of so many local restaurants, this is why they want to support them now so they can help each other in the future.”
By dining out at participating restaurants on September 17, you will support businesses that are a vital part of the community and ensure their continued existence, said PMHS.
