Cheerleaders urged passers by to eat at Magee’s Patio Cafe to benefit the last Give Back Night for the Natchitoches Humane Society Sept. 27. For the past three Tuesdays Magee’s Patio Cafe has given the NHS 15 percent of its sales. Local cheerleaders from Natchitoches Central High School, Northwestern State University and St. Mary’s Catholic School helped collect donations and pull in passing vehicles.
Their enthusiasm was contagious, clapping and cheering each time a car pulled in or donated.
“Big thanks to George Celles and everyone here at Magee’s for hosting us,” said Debbie Tebbetts of NHS. “We’re so happy he let us and the local cheerleaders take over. All of the money we receive will go to the care of the animals at Happy Tails, the NHS facility. Right now we have over 20 animals at the facility and in foster care and we want the best for all of them. That is why I hope we make $1,000 by the end of this. We made $200 in donations alone one night, so I’m crossing my fingers.”
