Milwaukee, WI, August 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- MECA Wisconsin Police Canine Vest Foundation, a local non-profit, will be holding its 1st annual MECA Foundation Luncheon. The fundraiser, hosted by That’s Amore, 5080 S 108th Street in Greenfield, will be held on Sunday, October 9th from 11am-3pm. All proceeds from the luncheon will help fund a new police K-9 for Greenfield Police Department.
“Our mission has always gone beyond vesting Wisconsin’s police dogs. Helping purchase the police canine is our way to help keep Greenfield safe,” said Dr. Marla Lichtenberger, Founder of MECA Foundation.
Tickets for the luncheon are $50 per person and will include a choice of Sicilian Steak with Garlic Butter Pasta, Chicken Piccata, or Spaghetti and Meatballs. Lunch also includes your choice of coffee, soda, tea or one cocktail. The fundraiser will also feature both a silent and live auction and “surprises” throughout the afternoon.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.mecafoundation.org or in person at Milwaukee Emergency Center for Animals, 3670 S. 108th Street in Greenfield.
