Dear Editor:

The animal rescue foundation of Aquada, Puerto Rico ” A.D.A., Inc. ” is deeply grateful to Julia Pratt and her husband, Steve Jundt, for the wonderful culinary experience provided for the recent fund-raising benefit. Anton Uhl’s several days of artistic creativity was donated for the invitations. Aspen Caterers gifted the plates and cutlery, and Roger Carlsen, of the Grog Shop, helped with the cost of wine and beer. These kindnesses and many hours of help made the benefit possible. Further appreciation goes to the donors, whose financial aid will help alleviate some of the horrific suffering of animals in Puerto Rico. A huge thank you.
