8th Annual Event Recap
April 30, 2019
This year we celebrated Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge’s 27th Anniversary while hosting our 8th Annual Cats at the Castle Fundraiser. We set a goal of $27,000 to commemorate our 27 years of rescuing animals in need and thanks to our amazing supporters we surpassed it raising $34,822 in a single night! Our guests arrived at Castle Rogue’s Manor to the theme of “Hakuna Matata” for a fun-filled evening of fine dining, cocktails, music and giving for the animals!
Guests enjoyed live entertainment by Eureka Music Revival, delicious food catered by Victor Smith’s Catered Creations, silent and live auctions, a raffle, and presentations about our future endeavors. Guests were able to bid on one-of-a-kind pieces of art, thanks to the Artists and Biologists Unite for Nature Group (ABUN). This group consists of over 800 artists from around the world that want to make a difference for nonprofits in need, and they created breathtaking art of our animal residents.
We had an overabundance of amazing artwork, so much so that we couldn’t fit it all in the limited space available at Castle Rogues Manor. Because of this, we have decided to offer an online auction with some of the remaining pieces of artwork! On May 10, 2019, we invite all our supporters to join us for a fun online event that will allow you to own your own little bit of beautiful TCWR inspired artwork donated from ABUN and other local artists!
This is an extension of our Cats at the Castle event and has been requested by many supporters for years. We are excited to offer our online Cats at the Castle auction and hope many of our supporters will be able to join us. hWe will be posting further details about the event and items over the next few days on our social media.
