First ever Cinco de Meow held at The Wine Cellar Restaurant

RAPID CITY, S.D. — A hair raising time at the Wine Cellar Restaurant in downtown Rapid City.

The restaurant held it’s first-ever Cinco de Meow, a fundraiser for cat lovers. The event provided a chance to help cats in need, including adoptions and a silent auction. A catwalk on a red carpet was planned to give folks a chance to see the kittens up for adoption strut their stuff, but weather was not very cat friendly. Still, that didn’t stop Cinco de Meow from carrying on.

“The West River Spay and Neuter Coalition, since they opened in 2005, have helped and spayed over 10,000 cats,” said restaurant owner, Christy Land.  “All of the funds will go to them and to Jennifer Cramer cats. Nothing’s gonna stay here, so it’s just all for them.”

Although the event was for cats in need, Land also encouraged people to get their current cats spayed or neutered. Through donations from events like Cinco de Meow, the coalition is able to help cat owners who may not have the funds for surgical procedures.
