Don’t miss the Shamrock Pet Foundation’s 20th-anniversary “Art for the Animals” fundraiser, with a live and silent art auction of 130 pieces of original art from many popular local artists including Kathleen Lolley, Douglas Miller, Jeaneen Barnhart, Ezra Kellerman, Rodney Hatfield and many more. The nonprofit Shamrock works to end pet overpopulation through spay/neuter services, education, emergency medical assistance, foster care and the adoption of pets into loving, lifetime homes. The fundraiser will feature food from some of the city’s best restaurants including Red Hot Roasters and Sweet Surrender Cafe, along with beer, wine and bourbon tastings. DJ Kim Sorise will provide music for the evening. And, in case you are in need of a new friend, Shamrock will have a number of pets available for adoption.
