RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TENN. – Get ready for a fun-filled evening of delicious food at the 2nd Annual Spay-Ghetti Dinner with "No Meat" Balls... That was Dawn Roberts, Executive Director of the Beesley Animal Clinic & Foundation, the organization that is putting the event together.


This special event, which is a fundraiser for the non-profit that does so much for the local animal population, will take place next Thursday, June 27th, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. The event is in Goodness Gracious, located at 1430 Medical Center Parkway, Suite 1A (See above photo to catch a glimpse of their warm and inviting event space). Roberts said that she would prefer for guests to per-register this week...

Since the Beesley Animal Foundation opened the Beesley Animal Clinic in 1992, their veterinarians have performed well over 70,000 spay/neuter surgeries. The Beesley Animal Foundation, the nonprofit organization that operates the Beesley Animal Clinic, remains dedicated to decreasing the suffering caused by pet overpopulation in Rutherford County.

Spay-Ghetti, heading into year two, promises to be even more delightful and easier for Beesley supporters to enjoy, with staggered pick-up and dine-in reservation times to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all. While arrivals are staggered, guests are welcome to stay and enjoy the entire event. But again, reservations are encouraged, so make sure to secure your spot early!

You'll be able to choose your meal option, which will include the popular dine-in option or the to-go option for those busybodies! They are also offering a tasty vegetarian choice to choose from that features homemade marinara sauce from Goodness Gracious. The other option to pick is the delectable meat sauce dinner, available for both children and adults. Adult meals are priced at $20, while children 12 and under can enjoy their meals for just $10. And for those with furry friends, the restaurant's dog-friendly patio is the perfect place to dine with your canine companion during the upcoming event!

This upcoming Spay-Ghetti dimmer for the Beesley Animal Foundation is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together, enjoy great food, and support a worthy cause.

Remember, Goodness Gracious will provide the catering, ensuring a spectacular dining experience. AND ALL proceeds from the event will benefit the Beesley Animal Foundation, helping to fund their ongoing efforts to support animal welfare in the community.
