Fifth Annual Cats at the Castle April 18


Cats at the Castle is an annual fund raiser put on by Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge Board of Directors to help raise money for its more than 100 tigers, lions, and bears. This dinner and art auction takes place at Rogue’s Manor Castle at Beaver, Arkansas, just seven miles north of Eureka Springs. “We are fortunate to live in a community with such a rich population of artists in every possible medium,” says TCWR Vice-President Scott Smith. “And they are generous people who contribute to Turpentine Creek through donating their art to our cause, which is much appreciated.” TCWR also provides a program where the artist can donate and receive up to 60% of the auctioned item’s sale back to the artist, which creates a win/win for everyone. Guests to the event can enjoy not only the breathtaking scenic views from the castle, but fine dining with beer and wine as well. Tickets are $110 each and limited to the first 100 paid reservations. “Not too often do you get the opportunity to feast at the most unique castle in the country,” Smith said. “And when you bid at the auctions – we are doing both a silent and live one – you are directly benefitting over 100 lions, tigers, and bears who need your help to survive.” Suggested attire is business casual all the way to fancy. Social hour will start at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will follow at 7:30. Diners may choose between the “Tiger” option (prime rib) and the “Bear (vegetarian lasagna).
