Thanks to social networking websites and friends who know me as the ‘art lady,’ I was informed of a unique drawing event on Wednesday, June 13th, 2012 that would benefit The Wildcat Sanctuary - a Minnesota-based non-profit facility aimed to provide sanctuary to wild cats in need and to end private ownership of exotic animals.
Talented Chicago artists are joining forces to created Batman themed drawings up for auction. Dubbed the clever name, “Bats for Cats,” this drink and draw affair hosted by the Northdown Cafe & Taproom is one of the many wildlife events this neighborhood cafe is having. They have also dedicated a beer raffle day on June 19th to raise at least $5,00 which would feed two tigers for a year. You can read more here
Once again, it’s great to see the local community come together for causes, even for animals – the ones who really have nobody to speak for them. As an animal lover myself (and a pure Batman fan), I support this event and Northdown’s efforts wholeheartedly!
