The Lansdale Mural Arts Program and Manna on Main Street are the beneficiaries of an upcoming June event where pets are the theme.
The "Pets R People Too" fundraiser for Manna on Main Street and LMAP is asking attendees to bring a canned good for people or pets for Manna. The June 11 event is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Lansdale Business Center, 850 Cannon Ave., Lansdale.
The event boasts an evening of education and play for families and their pets. There will be games, face painting, moon bounces, pet-related groups and more. Bring a pet, play games and learn about the community. There is a small fee to participate in games and activities.
Sponsors include Montgomery United (MonU) Soccer, Impact! Thrift Stores, North Penn Under Ten, Merck Sharpe & Dohme, Quakertown National Bank, Lansdale Tavern and Party Bounce Rentals.
Sponsors like Lansdale Business Center, QNB and MonU are also participating in Manna's Florence Nightingale Challenge. The challenge is for businesses and organizations to come up with a fundraising idea for Manna and successfully carry it out. For instance, donating 10 percent of sales for one day to Manna, or holding a charitable golf outing.
LMAP members Marge Booz and Ellen Foulke, who are affilaited with Chantilly Floral Boutique and Lansdale Business Center, respectively, said the Florence NIghtingale participants are going to work with other sponors to have a great event, raise awareness of helping pets and people and collecting donations to support Manna's efforts.
