ANIMAL CARE SANCTUARY BENEFIT IS NOV. 12 AT WILLIE'S IN OSCEOLA

OSECOLA—Saturday, Nov. 12 at 4 p.m. Jerry Gaye of Osceola is hosting the third annual benefit for Animal Care Sanctuary at Willie’s Bar & Grill at 7647 Route 49 in Osceola.

“I’m trying to do what I can for Animal Care Sanctuary,” Gaye said. “When the dog Charlie was found dead in 2014, I felt I had to do something to help ACS.” Gaye first became a volunteer at the Wellsboro sanctuary and then decided to host an ACS benefit.

The first benefit at Willie's was on Jan. 18, 2015 and raised $655.50. The second benefit was on Nov. 18, 2015 and raised $1,300. The money helped ACS with food and medical supplies.

Animal Care Sanctuary is a no-kill sanctuary for dogs and cats. Located at 11765 Route 6 across the highway from Weis Markets in Wellsboro, Tioga County, it is affiliated with Animal Care Sanctuary at 353 Sanctuary Hill Lane in East Smithfield, Bradford County.

After an Elkland woman first discovered Charlie (AKA Elsa) on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014, Animal Care Sanctuary at Wellsboro became involved in Charlie’s case. The frozen, emaciated black and tan dog wearing a pink color was found in a locked, medium-sized, plastic pet carrier that was upside down in the woods along Cummings Creek Road in Farmington Township. Following a necropsy by a veterinarian, it was ruled the one-year-old male dog had died "due to probable starvation over a period of time.” Charlie was alive when he was driven to Cummings Creek Road on Oct. 3, 2013 and left in the locked crate. Elsa was the name private citizens gave the deceased dog before learning it was a male. An Elkland man was sentenced in the case.

During the Nov. 12 benefit, Gaye will play old-time country classics and bluegrass favorites on his disc jockey system.

“We are hoping this year’s benefit will be even bigger than last year’s,” said Gaye. "More people are getting into it and more monetary donations are coming in.”

There will not be a cover charge. People can donate money to help Animal Care Sanctuary or bring a bag of dog or cat food according to Gaye who DJs at Willie's.

A Chinese auction will also be part of the fun on Nov. 12. Jewelry, toys, clothing, handmade blankets and pillows, homemade candy, a hairstyling certificate, dishes and bakeware from World Kitchen in Corning, a $100 Walmart gift certificate, a $40 socket wrench set, a $25 Elkland Beverage gift certificate, binoculars from Beikirch’s Hunter Supply in Elkland and gift certificates from Short’s Bakery and Ridge Runner Café, both in Elkland and Lee’s Country Kitchen in Osceola are included as well as items from Osceola Big M, Mid-State Beverage and others.
