Newburyport – Newburyport Bank has donated $1,000 to the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society (MRFRS) of Salisbury, MA in support of their 27th Annual Fur Ball Gala and Auction, which will take place on October 2nd at the Blue Ocean Event Center in Salisbury, MA. The theme for this year’s Fur Ball is “Paws-ability Begins.”
The MRFRS is a nationally recognized, volunteer-driven non-profit organization committed to ensuring the health and welfare of feral and domestic cats and kittens by promoting proactive, compassionate, no-kill programs. The annual Fur Ball Gala plays a major role in raising funds necessary for the life-saving programs on behalf of cats and people that care about them.
“For more than 25 years the Feline Rescue Society has cared for cats in need,” said Lloyd L. Hamm Jr., President & CEO of Newburyport Bank. “Whether it’s providing for their well-being and care, or placing cats and kittens into loving homes, they have done it with great compassion. Of course, financial support is required to support their efforts, and the Fur Ball Gala is a major initiative in that regard. We’re very pleased to support it.”
