2014 Painted Chair Auction a Smashing Success

Thanks to all of the artists, musicians, sponsors, volunteers, adopters, and donors who turned out for our annual Painted Chair & more Auction on August 23rd. With record breaking attendance of more than 300 people, we raised over $40,000 to help the animals!!! The music was lovely, the food delicious, and we had a particularly good time engagining in bidding wars over our favorite artwork. Thanks to all of you for everything you do for the animals, and hope to see you again next year!
