Despite the wildly popular Cat Video Festival held locally in August, it seems that cats and cat rescue organizations get less love and attention than their canine counterparts. To help level the playing field, Boom Island is proud to announce our inaugural Pints & Purrs event in the taproom. Slated for Saturday, October 15, 2016 from 1-9pm, this daylong event will benefit St. Paul non-profit Feline Rescue, Inc. Activities for this cat-centric event include Kitty Krafting, a video fashion show, Kitten Therapy, and trivia with proceeds going to Feline Rescue, Inc.
Schedule of planned events for Saturday, October 15th:
1:00pm: Boom Room opens with Louisiana Purchase Cajun food on site.
Kitten Therapy opens.
3:00pm: Kitty Krafting: Crafts for cats; donate to Feline Rescue or take home to your favorite feline.
5:00pm: Video Cat Fashion Show, hosted by Feline Rescue, Inc. vote with your dollars for the Cutest Kitty Costume and help save more cats!
5:00pm: Kitten Therapy closes.
7:00pm: Cat Trivia hosted by Feline Rescue, Inc. with prizes awarded.
9:00pm: Boom Room Closes.
Feline Rescue, Inc. will supply the kittens for the Kitten Therapy. For the safety and health of the shelter animals, we request that the public refrain from bringing in their pets to this event.
Feline Rescue, Inc. is one of the best, if not the best cat-centric foster and shelter organizations in the region. In 2015 they took in a record 809 cats, 741 of which were adopted. Please stop by the taproom on October 15 and help us celebrate all things cat. For more information and to help, go to:
