Thursday, July 17th (all day) The Original Ledo Restaurant on 4509 Knox Road in College Park is hosting a “Paws-ta Party!” to benefit the SPCA of Anne Arundel County & Prince George’s County Fire / EMS Department’s Sparky Fire Fund. The Sparky Fire Fund was created last year after Prince George’s County firefighters rescued and revived two Chihuahuas- Mylo & Otis from a house fire in Bowie, MD. Unfortunately, one of the two dogs passed away because the family didn’t have the financial resources to get him medically treated. As a result of this incident, the SPCA of Anne Arundel County and the Prince George Fire / EMS Department partnered to create the Spark Fire Fund which will provide financial assistance to family pets that were affected by house fires in Prince George’s County. Ledo’s will donate 15% of all sales when the customer presents the cashier with a copy of the flyer.
