“I live in Oklahoma and am from New Jersey and I recently got involved with improv and thinking I wish I could find a group that is performing and I should just create an event and do a fundraiser for the rescue,” said Leah Rose, the rescue’s president.
The comedic relief and improv will be by the Upright Citizens Brigade. There will also be auction prizes.
Friends with Four Paws was founded in 1998 with the goal of rescuing animals at the Chickasha Animal Shelter in Oklahoma from death by having mobile adoptions and providing foster care for dogs and cats.
Their adoptive homes are all throughout the country including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Maine.
The entry fee for the event is $55 and it covers food and drinks. Attendees will also have the opportunity to enter raffles for wine baskets and gift certificates.
There will also be donation baskets throughout the venue for those who want to make an extra contribution.
The event address is 66 Green Street and doors open at 7 p.m.
