When I spied the eyes of this chap upon me I inquired of the woman on the stoop as to his identity. She told me his name was “Texas” and he belonged to a woman who works at a shelter on Wythe Avenue. By this I presume she meant BARC.

Donations Wanted: BARC Fundraiser

As many of you reading this are probably aware, yours truly has a fondness for fur kids. This is especially true of cats. For this reason I feel compelled to pass along that BARC is seeking donations of art for their upcoming fundraiser. Julie writes:

Just to confirm, the event is scheduled for Monday, September 13th at My Two Dogs, 434 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222 (718-963-0400).

The time will be from 7 PM until approximately 10 PM.  Any artwork that artists would like to donate can be dropped off at BARC Shelter, 253 Wythe Ave,  or I can arrange to pick it up.  BARC hours are Tues-Sat from 12-5.

The event is free for people who just want to attend.  If someone wants to bring home a piece of artwork they’ll donate $250 and they’ll select the piece they want (names of all the people who donate $250 go into a jar and are picked at random- first name picked selects first and so on).

I have been advised that any and all artists donating work should attach a piece of paper to their work with the following information:

  1. their name
  2. their email address (NOTE: this is for BARC’s purposes only.)
  3. name of the piece (if there is one)
  4. media used in the piece

The deadline for submissions is September 1st, so any and all interested in submitting work should get hustling!

THIS WEEK: Fundraiser for the McCarren Dog Run

macdogrunThis Saturday, November 21, NYCPet will be hosting an all-day event to benefit McCarren Park’s very own dog run. “Shopping For Dogs” is pretty self-explanatory: 10% of every purchase made on this day will be donated to the McCarren Dog Run to help fund their much-needed drainage project (at last word they still need about $5,000 more bucks to make this happen). In addition, there will be a drawing for prizes from such local businesses as:

  • Northside Veterinary Clinic
  • Holistic Select Products
  • Brooklyn General Barber
  • And much more!

Refreshments are also promised. If you patronize the McCarren Dog Run run— even occasionally— please swing by NYCPet this Saturday. You can also make a donation online via PayPal. It’s your dog run, Williamspointers!

Shopping for Dogs
November 21, 2009; 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
241 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11211

Be sure to buy a can for BARC while you’re there!

Hi Miss Heather!

I love your blog :-)  and thought maybe you could post a flyer for our event?  I’m doing a “Belly Dancers for BARC” benefit show at the Boulevard Tavern on Meeker this Saturday from 6pm-10pm.  We’ve gotten beer donations from Weinstephaner & Harpoon and all profits from those sales will go to BARC as well as whatever we make on a raffle we’re putting together.  No cover charge, belly dance performances by my company, Manhattan Tribal and other local dancers….

All the best and thank you!

A Beer & Bellydance Benefit for BARC
