Amount does not include additional donations made directly to the project.
Responding to a stray cats issue that has bothered many Baldwin Township residents, Getaway Cafe owner Lou Manolios hosted a trap-neuter-return (TNR) fundraiser at his restaurant on July 12. Manolios said that the Getaway was "hopping" that day with diners that came specifically for the cats. But no matter what their reason for coming, 20 percent of all patrons' bills (before taxes and not including alcohol) was donated to the volunteer group Animals Against The Odds Rescue and Rehab (AATO) for a TNR program that will include many cats living behind the Getaway.
