benefit for Greyhound rescuer

Hi all,
I wanted to post this because I know a number of you are *somewhat* local to Western North Carolina (and even if you're not, a vacation for a good cause would be fun!)

This woman runs a greyhound rescue group and is the nicest, most selfless giver of her time, money and energy to a group of animals that we (as humans) have simply screwed over.  She is also my accountant and is she not is good shape.  I am worried about her and her animals.

Anyway, we are having a benefit for her and her dogs next week.  If any of you think you'd be interested, you may contact me at: raika at inorbit dot com

Local businesswoman and greyhound dog rescuer, Millicent Smith was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and cannot work. My goal is to bring together the community to raise $5000 to cover medicines, the mortgage and care for Millicent's beloved animals.

PLEASE JOIN ME IN THIS EFFORT by attending this event, bringing a friend and purchasing an item from the silent auction. JUST $25 buys your ticket which includes a wonderful hot lunch from premiere Asheville caterers, THE COLORFUL PALATE.

This will be a great opportunity to meet new people, talk business and support a local entrepreneur in need. Bring lots of biz cards!

Though I've never been much of an animal person (really), I have always loved and wanted a greyhound. They are beautiful and so mistreated. Anyhow, I think it's absolutely wonderful that you are sharing this with us. . .aside from locals that can attend, will they accept mailed in donations? Is there an address . . .
