On Saturday, June 25, from 10 AM to 2 PM, the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park will host the inaugural 'Feed Our Furry Friends, an Empty Bowls project!' benefit to raise awareness and funds for the Pet Food Assistance Program of Animal Compassion Network (ACN).
ACN is asking local artists and crafters who make wares suitable for pet food bowls to donate as many finished pieces as they wish for sale at this event. Other handcrafted items for pets will also be much appreciated, including pet accessories and gift certificates for services such as pet sitting, grooming, photography, etc.
If you have a hand-made product or service you wish to donate, please contact Lori Theriault (firstname.lastname@example.org). Then plan to attend the event with your own furry friend!This will be a pet-friendly event, and each artist who donates pieces for the event will receive a complimentary ticket to attend.
2011 marks the 10-year anniversary of Animal Compassion Network's Pet Food Assistance Program. Since the program's inception in 2001, ACN has provided approximately 250,000 meals to hungry cats and dogs throughout Western North Carolina.
