[CANCELLED] Frank’s Birthday Fundraiser by Ted’s Tire Discounter (May 1 – May 31)

From the organizer:

Frank the Tire Cat has become an icon &  mascot of our store. Many customers come just to see him, give him attention or bring treats. During the month of May, we will be hosting a birthday fundraiser in honour of Frank for the Guelph Humane Society (referred to as GHS). We will collect donations in store, online (tedstire.ca) and on our Facebook Page. Also, for every set of tires sold during the month of May we will donate an additional $10! We will also be collecting food, toys and other useful supplies for the GHS in-store.

Let’s get ready to celebrate!
