Sweet! BARCS fundraiser @ Field House

fiona be rockin it.I've always had a soft spot for BARCS, the animal rescue and care center in South Baltimore. That's where Amie got Fiona (pictured).

From 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. today, BARCS is taking over the Field House in Canton for a wickedly awesome fundraiser. They're asking for a $7 donation, and there's an open bar from 7 p.m.-8 p.m. 

There's more than just an open bar, of course. Free haircuts from Floyd's 99, raffles and all kinds of goodies. 

So get there, and when you're there, raise a glass for Fiona and all of the countless other animals BARCS has helped save.

Hi Sam,

Thanks for the shout! Even with the Sahara like conditions we still had a great turnout!

Thanks to Fieldhouse for the open bar, Floyds 99 in Brewers Hill for the cut-a-thon, The Intercontinental and 2910 on The Avenue for raffle donations!

We raised close to $600 for BARCS and will be doing it again!


Man, I just read this & was planning to go tonight. Meanwhile, it went down 2 days ago. Drat!

Thanks Sam for blogging about our event.

It was a lot of fun! A big thanks goes out to everyone who made it happen, Mohawk Todd, The Field House, Floyds 99, Stephanie at 2910 on the Avuenue.

Thanks to our supporters who came out and hoisted a few for the animals at BARCS!

UGH! Thanks for the 'advanced' notice, I would have attended this and gave more than $7. I only read the blog Mon-Fri. #FAIL on someboy's part.

@double B -- I only take credit; I don't take blame. Guess that means it's your fault for not reading on the weekends. Sorry buddy.
