Father’s Day fundraising event to benefit ROAR

Ridgefield-area residents can support “man’s best friend” at a Father’s Day fundraising event benefiting Ridgefield Operation for Animal Rescue (ROAR) at Ancona’s Wines & Liquors, 17B Governor Street.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 16.

ROAR items available for Dad will include hats and sweatshirts. Ancona’s will donate 10% of all sales during the event to ROAR. The shelter is located at 45 South Street.

ROAR dogs will also be available for adoption at the event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“The connection between dads and their dogs are truly special,” said Pam Rybarczyk, board member for ROAR. “Our Father’s Day event at Ancona’s will give local residents an opportunity to shop for gifts to thank Dad for all that he does and adopt his next best friend.”
