Go to the BARCS fundraiser at Mother's tomorrow

barcsI would like to take a moment and pump this fundraiser for the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS). 

BARCS does some really cool things in the community, as far as caring for animals goes. Amie got her cat Fiona there.

The fundraiser is 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Saturday (tomorrow) at Mother's on the Alley (1113 S. Charles St.).

Tickets are $50 pre-sale and $60 at the door, and get you open bar, appetizers and the NCAA tournament on 18 flat screen TVs.

Do it.

This one the worthier post in awhile in a weird kind of way as it's not a nightlife item..

Wow. Saving adorable animals, watching the Sweet Sixteen, AND getting hammered at the open bar?

Sounds like the greatest event of all time.

Yay! Thanks for promoting this, Sam!! I will be there!

BARCS is a fantastic organization. I volunteer there, and sometimes I feel like I get more out of being a volunteer than they get out of me. Playing with the cats and walking the dogs is a great mood-booster, and the volunteer training has taught me a lot of useful stuff for whenever I grow up enough to get my own pet, hehe.

Just curious, how much of the ticket goes to BARCS?

where is BARCS? i'm looking into getting a dog!

yay!!! barcs is wonderful and yes i rescued fiona from there... but i thought she was "our" cat? do you not love her anymore? *sniffle*

Is foie gras going to be on the menu at Mothers that night? Hehehe

BARCS is located at 301 Stockholm Street between the Ravens stadium and the Greyhound Terminal. The shelter is open for adoptions from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays and 12:30 pm to 6 pm weekdays.
