Boxer Rescue Event

Sandra asked me to please pass this along to everyone at Big Cat Rescue since we were nice enough to support them last year with our attendance:



The Art of Rescue

Dancing to a New Beat


Sponsored by Florida Boxer Rescue and The Art Institute of Tampa

Date: June 13, 2009

Time: Starting at 8:00am to 10:00pm (you do not have to be there the entire time)

Where:  The Art Institute of Tampa is located at 4401 N. Himes Ave. in Tampa Florida.



Please join Florida Boxer Rescue on June 13th for a day of music, dance, art, food, and many informative seminars.  Learn from the best during 90 minute instructional classes in just about every subject. Sample wonderful hors d'oeuvres created by the students from The International Culinary Schools at The Art institute of Tampa. Enjoy wine and beer while listening to live music by the very talented Nick Planitis-McKee. Art auctions, raffles, and prizes to take place all day with proceeds going directly to the boxers rescued by the Florida Boxer Rescue. Please visit our website at flbr.org for detailed information and to purchase tickets for this event.


I would like to open up this event to your rescue group and ask them to be involved in the dance-a-thon as well as the other activities of the day.  I am asking your volunteers to collect sponsor support and funds for their rescue group, and put in just 2 hours of dancing which they will be sponsored for.  We are going to have instructional dancing (line, belly, salsa, swing etc…) or you can just come and do your own thing.  Your members will be allowed to attend one seminar free of charge (Photoshop, digital photography, Scrapbooking, seminar by animal behaviorist, Connie Borwick, culinary and more, and can just basically join in the fun.  What will your group get out of this?  Well, we will allow you to keep 50% of the donated amount of money you collect, because we are advertising this event in many media venues you will also get the extra publicity for your group, and of course you will be allowed to put up a banner and promote your particular rescue group.


If this might be something your group would like to participate in please contact me at the phone number or e-mail address below.
