Greetings Cat Lovers! Do you have paintings, photographs, or sculptures that you no longer want? You are cordially invited to donate art to an upcoming two-part art auction and show. The online auction goes public November 1, 2019 and culminates in a live auction and show at a gala event at Boulder 54 on January 23, 2020.
This auction is for a fundraising event entitled Top Cat & Tails. Four local animal welfare organizations (Amigos de Animales, Los Mininos Cat Sanctuary, Salvadores de Animales, and La Casa de los Animales) are raising funds to support community efforts to sterilize local cats, provide food, housing, veterinary care, and adoption services for homeless cats and kittens, and provide support for feral cats in the Boquete community.
Homeless cats need to be sterilized, kittens and friendly adults need to be adopted into homes, and feral adults need to be maintained at feeding stations. A compassionate community takes care of its animals, protects the health of people, and supports biodiversity. These steps are important in their own right, but they are essential if Boquete is to realize its potential as an international tourist destination. As Mahatma Ghandi said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated.”
By highlighting the arts in this event, we will strengthen community ties and benefit one another in our efforts to create a vibrant town. We are also soliciting original works from the local arts community, thereby including them in a community-wide effort. We are reaching out to you to support us in this work and to celebrate the cultural richness of our region.
The fundraising team is seeking at least 75 pieces of donated art. If you would like to donate one or more pieces of art. We hope you will consider donating, and, hopefully more than one piece of art. If you donate, click HERE to donate.
Please make sure that your photo includes your name as well as the name of the art. If you have questions, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for participating in this event. You will be receiving more information once your submission is received. We will make a follow-up phone call to you in the near future to answer any questions you might have.
