Rock Out For Animals: A Benefit for the Seattle Humane Society!

Have you ever wanted to rock out while helping animals? Of course you have.

Seattle bands In Cahoots, Furniture Girls, Verlee For Ransom and Afraid of Figs will take the stage Saturday, November 12that the High Dive from 4-8pm and do just that. They are playing Rock Out For Animals: A Benefit for the Seattle Humane Society, and are hoping to raise $3000.00 for their favorite organization. Tickets are $15 (this is a +21 event), and can be purchased atwww.brownpapertickets.comor at the door on the day of the benefit.

Christina Cramer, singer and guitarist for In Cahoots, is the brainchild behind Rock Out for Animals. Having previously been a volunteer at the Seattle Humane Society, she saw how much everyone at the organization makes due with sometimes limited resources. Christina decided to mix her love for animals and rock and roll together, and raise money for the Seattle Humane Society by throwing a benefit concert alongside three of her favorite Seattle bands.

Shes even recruited the talents of her dog Milo (a service dog whom she adopted from the Seattle Humane Society) to accept donations, and probably give lots of kisses, at the benefit.

Local merchants such as Babeland, Mud Bay, Rudys Barbershop, Madame Lazongas Tattoo, Hothouse Spa, Taste of India, Half Price Books, and Portage Bay Goods heard about the benefit, and hopped on board by donating their products and services to be raffled off at the show. The first 10 people at the benefit will receive a free raffle ticket.

We hope to see you there for a great time, for a great cause!
