Super Discount for L.A. "CATS for Cats" Benefit!

Los Angeles cat rescue organization, Kitty Bungalow: Home for Wayward Cats is presenting their 2nd Annual "CATS for Cats" Celebrity Musical Benefit starring Fred Willard is THIS SATURDAY, July 14th, 2013 at 8pm, at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown L.A. This year, as part of the program, they'll also be awarding the 1st ever "Cats in White Spats" award to Carrie Ann Inaba ("Dancing with the Stars" Judge) for her animal advocacy efforts.

Kitty Bungalow is offering some Orchestra seats for Saturday's show at a "Rescue" rate of $15! (Full price is $150!). There is a limited supply of these seats, and they're meant for animal rescuers, shelter volunteers, fosters, etc. Shawn Simon is the Headmistress of the Kitty Bungalow, and the writer and producer of "CATS for Cats." She appreciates that my readers are a very special sort of animal lover, who support rescues, fostering and TNR, even if they're not on the 'front lines' - though of course, many of you are! 

For this reason, Shawn directed me to give all my readers the opportunity to take advantage of this great offer for a night on the town, and a great show, rubbing shoulders with L.A.'s animal advocate community! To get your $15 Orchestra seats, do NOT go to TicketMaster! Buy your tickets directly from Kitty Bungalow here: BUY TICKETS and enter the code "RESCUE."

Last year, Mom was on the CATS for Cats Event Committee, helping them organize that fantastic show. Some of you attended, some donated artwork or other prizes for the auction, and lots said they wished they could have gone. Mom also invited her pal Jackson Galaxy ("My Cat From Hell"), who made his first "red carpet" appearance at the benefit and had a great time.  ; )

The event received great reviews and honestly, Mom was blown away at how amazingly good the show was. She doesn't see a lot of Broadway caliber musicals and it was really awesome. This year's production promises to be as good, if not better! 

CATS for Cats is a reinvention of T.S. Eliot’s whimsical letters to his godchildren which became “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats,” an archive that much later became the inspiration for the musical CATS by Andrew Lloyd Webber - with many of Webber's songs featured in the show. 

All funds raised will benefit Kitty Bungalow - a wonderful cat rescue serving the area often referred to as 'South Central' Los Angeles. A 501c3 nonprofit organization, they rescue, neuter, socialize and find homes for feral kittens while providing outreach, education and Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) services.

Celebrity Performers include:
Fred Willard (Best in Show)
Owain Yeoman (The Mentalist)
Todd Lowe (True Blood)
Keith David (Princess and the Frog)
Alicia Witt (Friday Night Lights)
Janel Parrish (Pretty Little Liars)
Naturi Naughton (FAME, The Client List)
Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill)
Ioan Gruffudd (Ringers)
Paul Vogt (MADtv)
& several of the So You Think You Can Dance Dancers

Mom hopes to see you Saturday!! She'll be the one with my stunt double on her arm. Be sure to say hi!

That sounds like a great deal, but unfortunately that's the same as Apache's guide dog turn in day. Thanks for sharing!
