benefit for Greyhound rescuer
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
NETWORKING BENEFIT LUNCHEON AND SILENT AUCTION THURSDAY FEB 8th 11AM-1PM

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 . . .
