Kitten Rescue will hold its 8th annual “Furball at the Skirball” fundraiser on Saturday, September 10th.
Hosted by actor and activist Billy McNamara, Kitten Rescue will honor Gloria and Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath) with their Advocacy Award. Celebrity guests include Tricia Helfer, Jackson Galaxy and Bonnie-Jill Laflin. The evening supports the organization’s efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and place homeless animals into loving homes, with a special focus on raising funds for their new Kitten Nursery.
Tickets are priced at $150 and include an open bar, appetizers, an elegant plant-based dinner, live entertainment, a silent auction, awards and video presentations.
“The main focus of this year’s event is to raise funds for the Kitten Rescue Nursery,’” said Sandra Harrison of Kitten Rescue “The Kitten Rescue Nursery is dedicated to saving the most helpless victims of the homeless cat cirsis- orphaned, unweaned kittens. While the Kitten Nursery has increased our lifesaving ability, it has also doubled our operating budget, making our need for funds greater than ever.”
Now in its 8th year, “Furball at the Skirball” has become one of Los Angeles’ most prominent fundraisers for homeless animals. Last year’s event raised $55,000 to help Kitten Rescue launch their Journey Home Transport Program and pay for much needed medical care for rescued cats.
The festivities take place at 6 p.m., Saturday, September 10th at the Skirball Center’s Ahmanson Hall. Tickets may be purchased here.
Kitten Rescue is a non-profit, no kill, cat rescue organization based in Los Angeles, dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of homeless animals since 1997.
