Also, Coalbe & I'd like to take a moment to thank the Chef, all the vendors, friends, and performers for all their Fongtastic donations to the CatNap from the Heart raffle. There were so many items this year we had to draw winners between 3 bands, Ya'll RoCk!

We'd also like to thank everyone who participated by buying raffle tix, and hope the winners enjoy their goodies!

Here's the awesome part, because of all of you folks we were able to raise $900.00 to benefit the Kitties!!! Yay!!!!!

=^..^=

Thanx again,

PS: Mark those calendars NOW for the next Fong Fest-Saturday, September 13, 2014!
