Rockin’ out for a good cause

Written by 

The “Rockin’ FUR The Cats” show with Pleasure Chest (rock/soul) will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at The Grey Eagle in Asheville.

Feline Urgent Rescue of Western North Carolina (FUR) relies on donations, fundraisers and volunteers to care for the 100-plus displaced cats in foster care at its 2,600-square-foot sanctuary in Waynesville. The sanctuary is located on 3.5 acres, where rescued cats can free-roam in a cage free, two story haven. FUR is a 501©3 nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible.

“When Sarah and Russ Keith, owners of The Grey Eagle, offered to host a fundraiser for FUR, we jumped at the opportunity,” said Jennie Kirby, event coordinator. “This type of event is different from anything else we’ve done before and we look forward to an enjoyable afternoon for everyone. We greatly appreciate the Keith’s generosity and their willingness to help FUR raise money to help fund the care of cats and kittens at the sanctuary.”

Ticket prices are $20 or $75 for sponsorships. They can be purchased through the websites www.furofwnc.org and www.thegreyeagle.com. Tickets can also be bought at the door. Sponsorships include name recognition at the event, two tickets and a special gift. The Tacqueria at the Grey Eagle will be open for food and beverage purchases.
