Mardi Gras Art
Exhibit Fundraiser Party
Laissez les bons temps rouler! (“Let the good times roll”) on March 1, from 4:30pm – 6pm we are happy to be hosting an exciting community event for our 3rd Annual Mardi Gras celebration.
Pictures are worth a thousand words. Enjoy local works of art, get a professional photo taken of you and or your dog, peruse the silent auction while enjoying a festive Mardi Gras atmosphere all to benefit local dog rescues and the Longmont Council for the Arts. We are happy to be hosting such an exciting community event.
Longmont Council for the Arts believes art enhances the quality of life. (Just like we believe dogs do!) Every day, they inspire creativity for their artists, students and patrons because art enables us to see the world in a different way. We are grateful for their help in finding local artist and bring their inspirations to our clientele. The artwork will be on display from February 10th ending after this event on March 2nd. Stop by and see the exhibit. It is open for public viewing anytime we are not utilizing the gym for training. One piece from each artist is being donated for the silent auction.
Atomic Pet Portrait studio will have their Unleashed backdrop on site taking photos of pets and/or their people too! For a $10 donation to the dog rescues come dressed ready for a photo shoot! You will receive ONE FREE 5”x7” for participating. Other images may be purchased separately through Atomic Pet Portrait. Bathe your dogs, wear your best, and for fun, toss on some Mardi Gras beads – handed out at the door!
Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and an authentic King Cake will be available for humans and of course we will have something for your dogs as well. Let the smooth New Orleans jazz put you in the mood for giving!
Cover Charge is $10 PER PERSON in advance or $15 PER PERSON at the door (your well behaved leashed canine friends get to come FREE). Remember to bring money for the silent auction and pet photos!
Longmont Council for the Arts will receive a donation equal to the total cover charge received for the party.
The silent auction totals and Atomic Pet Portrait donations will be divided among several dog rescues in the local area.
