Autobody celebrates Dog Days on Friday
I know, it’s only Monday and you’re probably not thinking about the weekend yet. (Or are you?) But last week when I wrote my big post about upcoming fundraisers, I pulled a bonehead move and forgot to tell you about “Dog Days Deux – Taking the Biscuit,” Autobody Fine Arts’ second annual animal benefit, which is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. this Friday, July 24.
Tickets for the event are $20 for adults, $10 for kids under 8 and seniors, and are available in advance at Autobody, which is at 1517 Park Street, or on Autobody’s website. For more information or to RSVP, you can e-mail gallery runner Jacqueline Cooper at firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at 865-2608.
The event is a benefit for the Alameda Animal Shelter – which cares for and adopts out dogs, cats and the occasional rabbit, and the Northern California German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue (aka Norcal GSP Rescue), which looks out specifically for the hunting breed. Last year, Autobody raised $5,000 for the shelters – an amount they hope to double this year.
They’ll have their usual caterer, Flying Monkey of Marin, in the house, plus wine from Rosenblum, beer from Trumer Pils, a silent auction of pet related items and artwork, a raffle (there’s a looong list of businesses that sponsored the raffle), and maybe a few visits from some of your four-legged friends.
Oh, and they’ll have music from The Wakefield Jazz Quartet.
