Shelter Benefit Set For Monday

Shelter Benefit Set For Monday

BERLIN — The community is invited to Burley Oak Brewing Company on Monday, March 24 at 6 p.m. to help Pepper’s Restaurant and musician Kaleb Brown assist the Worcester County Humane Society in moving forward in its goal to regain financial stability.

A reggae singer, guitarist and composer, Brown will be donating his musical talent for the evening while guest bartenders Amy Rockelli and Pat Pugh will donate their time and tips serving Burley Oak Brewery product throughout the evening. Proceeds of product sales will be donated to the humane society.

The Worcester County Humane Society is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, no-kill shelter located in West Ocean City dedicated to housing and re-homing abandoned animals. After a change in leadership, it was discovered that the financial situation of the non-profit was a major concern. A new Ways and Means Committee has been established and volunteers are working on new fundraising and grant writing initiatives to bring the shelter back to operating in the black.

At the event next week, cat and dog food and toy donations are welcome as well as towels and blankets. For a complete listing of all the shelter’s specific needs, click over to

Additional fundraisers this year will include a golf tournament and Pooch Palooza Extravaganza as well as the yearly events including the Boardwalkin for Pets, booths at Springfest and Sunfest, the Home and Garden Show and the Easter Show. A cash raffle ticket drawing party will be held in December. If you would like to get involved with fundraising initiatives, call the Worcester County Humane Society at 410-213-0146 and leave a message for Sandy.
