Belly up to the table and enjoy another great dinner to benefit the SPCA of Hancock County!

Coda restaurant in Southwest Harbor, is holding a benefit dinner on Wednesday, March 15th, to raise money for the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) of Hancock County.

A special three-course menu will be featured that night at a cost of  $50 per person – with $15 from each dinner being donated to the SPCA of Hancock County's animal shelter on the Bar Harbor Road in Trenton.

Dinner will be served from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended.

Entrée choices include a New York strip, lobster and grits, roasted pork tenderloin and butternut squash ravioli. Desserts include buttermilk doughnuts and maple crème brulee.

“Here at Coda we are all about community and wanting to give back.  This was our opportunity to help.  So we thought who wouldn't like to have a nice dinner out and give back at the same time,” said Carrie Emerson, Coda’s  general manager.

Coda will also be holding a raffle for a $50 restaurant gift certificate. Tickets are $4 each or three for $10, with the proceeds benefiting the SPCA. The winner will be drawn the night of the benefit dinner.

Diana de los Santos, director of the SPCA, said the non-profit animal shelter is very grateful to Coda for their generosity. The benefit dinner is also a wonderful way for the Trenton-based SPCA to connect with people in the Southwest Harbor community, de los Santos added
