On Saturday, January 11, 2014, the staff of the Blue Plate Restaurant, located at 1 Kinderhook Street in Chatham, NY, will be hosting their 11th Annual Post-Holiday Party to benefit the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA. In the last eight years, this event has raised more than seventy-five thousand dollars for CGHS/SPCA, which serves nearly one thousand unwanted, abandoned, lost and/or abused animals every year.

All the food is donated by the staff and friends of the Blue Plate.

The cost is $25 per person, more if you can afford it or less if you can’t. The food is buffet style, and will be accompanied by music from local bands, belly dancers, and a cash bar. In addition, there will be a silent auction and raffles. The benefit runs from 5 p.m. until “whenever.”

“This year we’re continuing our tradition of hosting a great party to benefit a really great cause. The Humane Society really needs new facilities, so please come out and have a fun evening with us!” said Marcia Curran and Colleen Carpenter-Rice, co-organizers. For more information or to donate silent auction items, please contact Marcia at, Colleen at or the Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA at (518) 828-6044, or by email at
