More Cowbell at CAS Cocktails and Cow Tales!

What a great night for Catskill Animal Sanctuary! Their Cocktails and Cow Tales event, was a big hit!  The house was packed with guests who came out to mingle, party, learn more about the farm and most importantly, save animals.

Kathy Stevens, in her fab, little orange dress, did not disappoint at pulling at our heartstrings, while speaking about the farm and the animals.  The rescue situations are devastating. How she and her team take these animals in, rehabilitate them and give them the lives they deserve, is nothing short of miraculous. This is a team some of the most humble, dedicated, hard working and amazing people I’ve ever met.

People swarmed the sponsorship tables. Every time an animal was sponsored, a cowbell rang.  I will tell you, that bell rang all night!

...because you can never have too much cowbell. Right?

Each sponsorship creates funds that contribute directly to the care of these animals.  You can adopt an animal anytime you want (how about now??) by clicking here.  SPONSOR

Along with tables filled with silent auction items and t shirts for sale, guests contributed over $66,000 for CAS!!

A board member spoke, letting us know that, “…Charity Navigator is the country’s leading evaluator of over 8,000 U.S. charities’ financial health and transparency. On a scale of of zero to four stars, Catskill Animal Sanctuary has earned four stars and is ranked in the top 6% overall. We’re the highest ranked farmed animal sanctuary.” Wow – well deserved, CAS!

Topped off with a wine and juice bar, I guarantee everyone left with a full belly and a full heart.
