September 30, 2010


Monday night football was anything but ordinary at Waxhaw’s Southsiders’ Deli and Pub!  Folks came to the Bears vs Packers game and every one was in good spirits!  All were decked out in their favorite team’s attire including Bear’s jerseys and Packer’s cheese hats!  Besides the usual wonderful eats, drinks and fun atmosphere at Southsiders this past Monday night, there was another wonderful thing happening!  Southsiders’ owners, Mark and Patty, had been selling raffle tickets to FURR.

Mark offered two Bear’s hoodies (his and hers) during the game’s half time and sold $1 raffle tickets for weeks ahead of the event night!  Terry Schultz, FURR’s founder and Executive Director, frequents Southsiders and actually calls it the FURR headquarters for their business luncheons!  Getting to know Mark and Patty was a real treat not to mention the wonderful cuisine which is why FURR started going there!

Mark contacted Terry once about a little tiny black kitten running around outside the restaurant.  Terry was out of town but promptly sent over one of her faithful volunteers, Muffie Baer, who whisked up the little kitty and got it to  safety!  FURR has since adopted out “Wrigley” to a wonderful  new home and there sits a fine example of how the community can work together to save the world; one kitty at a time…….as FURR likes to put it!

Mark, Patty, Mike, Muffy, Brad and Terry

FURR is extremely grateful to Mark, Patty and the Southsiders’ staff for hosting this fund raising event for FURR!  The hoodies were given out at half time and the money given to FURR was in excess of $200, which is not too bad for selling raffle tickets for only $1!!!  THANK YOU SOUTHSIDERS!
