MARIANNA — Partners For Pets’ 4th Annual Spaghetti Dinner is set from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 28 at The First United Methodist Church at 2901 Caledonia Street in Marianna.



“This year we are proud to announce a new sponsor for the dinner, Greta Langley, Marianna's exclusive Allstate Agent & Allstate Insurance,” said Debbie O'Quinn. “They have given us a sponsorship grant of $1,000.”



She explained that the cost would be $5 per plate and $2.50 for children under the age of six.



“We will be having a raffle on several items and door prizes,” said O’Quinn. “Come on out and enjoy the fun.”



O’Quinn announced that another donation was made to the shelter from Wells Fargo thru their Community Partner Program on Wednesday, June 19.



“Vicky Beauchamp, from the local branch of Wells Fargo presented us with a $1,000 check,” she said. “This is the second year Wells Fargo has shown such great support for the Shelter. We would like to Thank Vicky Beauchamp and the entire staff at the bank for making this possible.”



She also announced that on Saturday, June 15, the Lady Elks Springtime Beauty Pageant Queens, visited the shelter with a large load of supplies that the queens had collected for the shelter.



“The girls along with their parents spend a lot of time promoting the shelter and asking for donations,” said O’Quinn. “The group is led by the pageant Chair Jane Powell. We have benefited from this great group of girls many times.”



Visiting Saturday was, Lorna Shaw-Junior Miss Springtime, Kinley King-Tiny Miss Springtime, Julianna Bellamy-Little Miss Springtime, Ashlyn Williams-Young Miss Springtime, Hannah Barfield-Teen Miss Springtime and Marissa Lane-Karas-Teen Miss Springtime.



“We would like to express our thanks once again to all of the girls and their parents for their continued support of the shelter,” said O’Quinn. “Everyone at Partners For Pets would like to express our gratitude for all the support the community has given us. We apologize if we have not been able to assist everyone who needs help finding homes for their pets. The number of stray animals is always overwhelming.”
