Traveling Companions

My friend Steve Dale emailed to tell me about a benefit he's co-sponsoring to aid companion animals affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Steve and the Chicago Veterinary Medical Association are celebrating Mardi Growl: Chicago Lends a Paw...benefiting a new building fund for the devastated LA SPCA (the primary shelter in New Orleans) and also the AVMF (Vets who respond to disasters):

Time: 6:00 p.m.
Date: Wednesday September 21, 2005
Location: House of Blues Hotel, 333 North Dearborn, Chicago, IL

Live music
Hors d'ouerves

Donation: $25/person; $5/pet

Not a Chicagoan? Then I hope you hold a similar benefit wherever you live...San Diego, Kansas City, New York....whatever city it is - Mardi Growl: San Diego, Kansas City...whatever. Lend A Paw!

If you're in the Chicago area, please come!

No matter where you live, you can contribute. Go to http://www.cvma.org/ or write a check to the Hurricane Katrina/Chicago Veterinary Medical Association, P.O. Box 5017, Oak Brook, IL 60522. Or check out Steve's website, http://www.petworldradio.net/
