At the end of April, we will turn one year old (already!), so grab your sombrero and join us in Sober Lane at 8pm to celebrate Mexican style!
We have plenty of surprises in store for you…
The party will begin with a Chilli Eating Contest (we would like to thank Khan Spices of North Main Street and Southern Fruit in Togher for sponsoring the chillies). At 8.30pm, our 50 contestants will sit down and go through 5 rounds bringing them to new levels of heat. Whether you want to take the challenge or just watch the pain on their face, you can’t miss it!
You think you can do it? Then, we want you there!
There are only 50 places, so hurry up! You can register by calling in to Sober Lane, where the staff will take your registration, or by downloading the registration form (CCN_Chilli_Disclaimer form_Registration_Final), filling it with your initials on the first page and your full details on the 2nd, and returning it with your €5 fee to Community Cats Network, PO Box 50, Midleton Delivery Services Unit, Ballinacurra Business Park, Midleton, Co Cork.
Our winner will receive a magnificient trophy sponsored by Gerald McCarthy Gifts and Awards. The 2nd nd 3rd place will get a certificate. All three runner-ups will get lovely prizes. Every contestant will also receive a souvenir badge of the night to prove their bravado!
Our Facebook event will be updated on a daily basis to give you tips to learn the tricks of the trade.
Don’t worry if you’re not brave enough to enter the Chilli Eating Contest, you can still come along and have fun!
We will treat you with delicious food served to the sound of Mexican music. There will be a guessing competition for all to enter (no, we won’t tell you what you will have to guess!). We will also hold a fantastic rifa (Urban Dictionary: spanglish. literally means “raffle”. but used as saying a certain gang or area is “the baddest” or “untouchable”. mexican slang.) with prizes for all to enjoy! If you cannot come to the party, you can still take part to the rifa by buying your tickets online and make this birthday a special one for all the feral cats in Cork (see here for more details).
We would like to thank Colm and his staff at Sober Lane for hosting the event and offering great feedback, Gerald McCarthy Gifts and Awards for sopnsoring the trophies, Zia of Khan Spices (North Main St, Cork) and Jim of Southern Fruit for sponsoring the chillies and all the businesses that sponsored prizes for the night.
A massive thank you goes out to all our supporters who have followed us along the road to help the feral cats in Cork county. Thanks to your support, we can change their lives, so here’s to the 2nd year!
