I have always said that if you are not ready to adopt or foster a furry friend, the next best way to help would be to attend these types of events because it is a perfect alternative to help.

Join Nicole Murray this Sunday, February 9th at the Sheraton Eatontown Hotel from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM for the Monmouth County SPCA's Annual Valentine's Day Brunch!

Nicole will be hosting as you enjoy a delectable buffet (which include vegetarian and vegan options), mimosas, prizes up for auction, a cash bar, and the oh so popular 50/50 raffle.

Plus, every single brunch attendee will be put in the running to win a vacation to The Club Barbados Resort & Spa.

Tickets cost $90 per person. This includes the entire brunch celebration and a portion goes towards the MCSPCA who fight daily to make sure our furry friends are happy and properly cared for.

I have attended this brunch and I will say this: dress to the nine. This group does not mess around!
