All those pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters really add up!
On Sunday evening, Mary O's hosted a coin-wrapping fundraiser for the East Village-based Social Tees Animal Rescue. Participants could drop off and wrap loose change ... with the proceeds going to the nonprofit on Ninth Street near Avenue A. Soul Cake...
"We were so honored when Mary offered to host a fundraiser for us — Mary O's is our favorite bar in the neighborhood. We've long admired how Mary has made her place feel like home for so many people, and we're always desperate for donations for veterinary care," said Samantha Brody, executive director of Social Tees. "It was really touching to see so many regulars and animal lovers show up to roll pennies and enjoy each other's company."
