Second Annual Saving the Big Cats Charity Auction

Jan 7, 2009

Please join us on January 17 (Saturday) for our second annual Saving the Big Cats Charity Auction. It promises to be a great day for the EFRC and all of our supporters as we gather at the Robert Irsay Pavilion in Carmel, Indiana, for three hours of food, drink and music, all the while enjoying both our multiple silent and live auctions! Our thanks to Nancy Irsay for opening the Pavilion for this special event.

Last year, the inaugural Saving the Big Cats Charity Auction raised nearly $25,000 for the EFRC and its big cats. Max, a male tiger, made the journey to Carmel on that day and served as a wonderful, 300-pound reminder of the amazing work being done at the EFRC. With your help we plan to raise $30,000 this year to benefit the EFRC. There will be a special "feline ambassador" from the EFRC on hand once again, so come to the event to find out who!

With an even better event planned for this year, we need your support to make it truly special! All guests will enjoy complimentary food, drink and music at the auction as they puruse the expansive display of silent auction items. Our live auction, featuring approximately 12 premium items, will highlight the day. Thanks to Steve Newby and Conversation Pieces for donating their musical talents for this event, The Daily Grind, Sheridan, Indiana, for donating the catering and to Upland Brewing Company, Bloomington, Indiana, for providing their micro-brew beer for our guests of legal drinking age.

The auction will take place on Saturday, January 17, from 3:00 pm through 6:00 pm. We will feature multiple silent auctions and a live auction of premium items. Advance ticket sales are available at the EFRC wesite for $20 (through 1/14) and then at the door for $25. For more information please visit our website, www.exoticfelinerescuecenter.org or e-mail savingthebigcats@earthlink.net.

We look forward to seeing you at the Irsay Pavilion on the 17th!

Please include name and address of honoree in special instructions so we know who to contact about your thoughtfulness.

Thank you for your continued support!
