The Friends of Beverly Animals and Not Your Average Joe’s are teaming up during the month of December to raise money to support our rescue work. Have lunch or dinner at NYAJ’s on any Tuesday in December, tell them you’re a FOBA supporter, and they will donate 15% of the receipts (less alcohol) to FOBA. Also good on take-out orders, just be sure to tell the cashier before your order is rung up. NYAJ’s is located at 45 Enon Street (Commodore Plaza), North Beverly, MA. In case you’ve never eaten there, we hope you’ll give it a try. The food and service are excellent.

Attached is a certificate you can print out and take with you if you wish. They will also have certificates at NYAJ’s. Print your name and phone number on the certificate and it will be entered into the drawings to be held in the middle and at the end of the month. Two winners will receive $25 gift certificates to NYAJ’s. It’s not necessary for you to submit a certificate for FOBA to get credit for your food. Just be sure to tell your server that you want to support FOBA when you place your order; the certificate is for participation in the drawings.

Please help us spread the word by forwarding this email to your animal-loving friends. Thank you very much. If you have any questions, please email or call 978-922-7190.

We wish you blessings for the holidays and New Year,
Bonnie Hannable & Everyone at FOBA
