Tickets Sell Out in Record Time at July’s SAGA Summer Salad “Cook” Off!

There was a fantastic turnout last night for the SAGA Humane Society’s monthly fundraising cook-off.  All 65 $10bzd tickets for the tastings sold out in under 15 minutes but those a bit late were more than happy to donate in others ways.  Cute t-shirts were for sale (all proceeds goes to the Humane Society)…

It’s HIP TO SNIP!  (Ellie and her husband…a pretty handsome couple…)


A raffle of donated prizes was well underway…(did you know that just one ticket will buy a cat or dog food for the day?)

Here are Faith and Julie selling tickets.  Hard to say no…


(Thanks SO much to the generous sponsor restaurants who donated gift cards: MELT, Waraguma and El Divino.)

…and the our generous host, Wet Willy’s Smokehouse, was jumping.

The donated salads arrived.  Perfect for a hot summer night.


Bacon seems liked a common theme.  I like it…
