Our Classics, Cats & Cabernet Fundraiser Was a Great Success
By Joy Smith
Over $34,000 Raised!
During the entire day, FieldHaven was bursting at the seams with the good will and love of a community who turned out to support a wonderful and worthy cause. The party was fantastic! What an incredible feeling of love and support we all felt.
The attendees braved the heat to ogle over the very cool classic cars and wooden boats, sip wine, sample some incredible food, listen to wonderful music, and bid on a wide array of auction and raffle items – and, of course, spend time with all of our adoptable/sanctuary cats. Even a few kittens came out of their foster homes to charm the partygoers.
The food and wine turned out perfect in spite of some rather stressful moments in the weeks leading up to the big day.
We heart fantastic comments from attendees stating the variety of wines and different foods was extraordinary. A huge debt of gratitude to my close friend Jane Cozart and caterer George Carreras for coordinating the delicious spread, and to the restaurants and food vendors who served and endured the heat to cook their specialties!
We are extremely grateful that so many companies and individuals were able to dig deep and support FieldHaven as both sponsors and donors of auction items. The music provided by the very fun group, Brazen Hussies and the Bad Boyz, was absolutely perfect for the setting and format. Even the horses appeared to be rocking out, as two horses attempted to dance with each other over the bars of their paddock, causing me to make a mad-dash to the bar to break up the “equine rumba” before a leg could become caught.
At the end of the day, each and every one of the FieldHaven kitties was comfortable in their respective beds in the cat trailer, dreaming of the new shelter we will be building for them someday soon.
