More than 200 people filled the Kincardine Legion, Saturday night, for the fourth annual "Spay-ghetti" dinner in support of Helga Szekely and Cozy Cat Kennels in Kincardine.

The event was sold out and people enjoyed a meal of spaghetti, Caesar salad and garlic bread. For dessert, there were many decadent delights, including 40 pies, dozens of butter tarts and cookies, all made and donated by Diane Leidy of Ripley.

People also had a chance to bid on a variety of wonderful items in the silent auction.

Originally, the dinner was a joint effort between Cozy Cat and the Huron Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), but Szekely announced Saturday night that the fund-raiser was not in partnership with the SPCA, it was solely for her cat rescue efforts.

"Thank you to all the volunteers, the merchants and to all of you who have supported this event," said Szekely. "I appreciate all the stores who sold tickets, and everyone who donated items for the silent auction. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and from my cats."

A final tally from the fund-raiser will be announced later.
