Best nonprofit Winner: Fieldhaven feline rescue Location: 2754 Ironwood Lane Phone: 434-6022 For the second year in a row, FieldHaven Feline Rescue was voted Best Nonprofit Group/Organization by Lincoln News Messenger readers. “I was very excited and very proud of our organization, especially given that it’s the second year in a row,” said Joy Smith. The organization’s volunteers work very hard and they deserve the award, Smith added. FieldHaven, according to Smith, is very supportive of the community as a whole and she said that helped lead to the organization winning the award. “We’re here to help people,” Smith said. “We’re not just an adoption agency.” In addition to taking in cats and putting them up for adoption, FieldHaven has free spay/neuter clinics, low-cost pet micro-chipping, and has seen more than 500 cats so far this year. Despite the good work, Smith said, the shelter at FieldHaven is not up to code, and if money isn’t raised to build a new one, FieldHaven will cease to exist. Classics, Cats and Cabernet will feature classic cars and boats as well as wine and hors d’oeuvres. The event will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at FieldHaven. Tickets cost $35. ~ Brandon Darnell
